OS 9.2 on a Old World - Mac Applications & Software

I have a Old World that is not a native G3. Its a G3 with a upgrade card. is there someway to run 9.2.x on it? I really want to get OSX, but these are troubled time with the economy, and my budget will not allow a new mac at this time. I would also need to replace some software that will not run in X or classic, and purchase serial/SCSI adaptprs to use all my expensive hardware. So its more than just a new mac....

    Yes. You can run OS X and 9.2.2 on an Old World. I'm doing it here.

    For OS X, go to [url]www.macsales.com[/url] and download XPostFacto.

    For 9.2, go to [url]www.os9forever.com[/url] and check out OS9Helper.

    Of course, he never specified which "Old World" Mac he has.

    True, but he *did* say it had a G3 upgrade card. I just assumed it
    was something in the 7300 - 9600 range, where CPU upgrades are common.

    BTW, I see that [url]www.macales.com[/url] (OWC) has also begun supporting
    OS9Helper, along with XPostFacto!

    Yeah, but it could also be in the x100 series, or a 6360/6400, for
    example. He really needs to specify, not just use a vague term.

    Performa 6360 and I hear I am out of luck with 9.2.x. I really want to get X,
    but the economy is bad know, and I do not have the budget, so I have to stick
    with 9.1. I cannot upgrade.

    Um, did you read Jim's response to your post? He said, "For 9.2, go to
    [url]www.os9forever.com[/url] and check out OS9Helper." The compatibility page for
    OS9Helper lists the 6400 as supported, and a 6360 is essentially a 6400
    in a desktop case.

    Of course, unless you're trying to install software that requires 9.2.x,
    you really don't have any reason to upgrade past 9.1.

    Old World is s'posed to be a "fairly" precise term ;-)
    The first generation of PCI Power Macs with Open Firmware
    fixed in boot rom, ie. up to & including beige G3.

    I've just used OS9-Helper to install 9.2.2 on stock standard
    7200/120, 7300/180 & 7600/200. It doesn't install on NuBus Macs,
    but they're pre-OldWorld.

    I've used XPostFacto to install 10.1 on stock standard
    7600/200 & 8600/300.

    If the OP has a PCI Mac with G3 upgrade he should have little
    problem running OS 9.2.2 or 10.1

    Yes, you can. Go to [url]www.macsales.com[/url]. Click on the "OS X Center"
    tab. Click on the big "9" on the right.

    9.2.2 itself is still available from Apple, I think!

    Yes but then also buy USB to serial/SCSI adaptors for all my old hardware.
