Hey guys. I aquired a B&W G3 the other day. I have since installed a
G4/400 in it. I have only been able to get to the install point 1
time. I had to quit because I had to swap the HD I was going to use
for the install. Since then, I cannot get past the first few screens.
The system "hangs" and won't do anything. Since I only have an old 4MB
ATI Rage IIC PCI card, I have to use "textmode=1" to get to the text
installer. The install screens will "freeze" at various point and
won;t do anything else. I can't get to another tty. However, the caps
& num locks will light up. I had tried several different memory chips
and CD/DVD drives as well as different HDs to no avail. I plan on
getting a Radeon for it shortly, but really don't want to sink any more
money in if it won't work. And, it runs Mac OS v9.2.2 with no
problems. I have also tried a G3/266 and it does the same thing. I am
stumped. Any suggestions would be appriciated. Thanx
