someone wants to sell me a B & W and i want to know if it's a rev a or b.

how do i tell? apparently he's made some upgrades to it, but it seems to kernel panic on him, telling him to restart his machine.

it's a 350 MHz G3.

can someone help? macdoc?

<p>From <a href="http://www.lowendmac.com/ppc/g3c.shtml">http://www.lowendmac.com/ppc/g3c.shtml</a>:</p><blockquote><p>When buying a blue & white G3, insist on getting a Revision 2 system. The best way to make sure you're getting a Rev. 2 motherboard is the "402" marking on the CMD646 IDE controller chip. See <a href="http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/G3-ZONE/yosemite/newfeatures.html">Accelerate Your Mac!</a> for more details on differences between these motherboard revisions.</p></blockquote>

Yep - I bought a Rev 2 300 recently. Most of them are likely copper core G3's, which overclock really well. Mine does 450 MHz really well.
