Does anyone remember how to differentiate the Rev As from Rev Bs on the beige G3/233? I used to know, but I forgot.

Fire up System Profiler... If the version of the ROM is:

$77D.40F2 -> Rev 1
$77D.45F1 -> Rev 2
$77D.45F2 -> Rev 3

Or... look at the ATI chip on the logic board. If it says "ATI Rage II+', then the logic board is Rev 1, if it says "ATI RagePro" then it's a version 2 logic board.

Hope that Helps...

John

So what does it mean if I have a revision 2?
Is it the better G3 Beige?

You have my attention now, I just had to ask.

Well that's good to know, I've been meaning to get a second hard drive for my Beige and have never known whether it could have a second drive or not, Thanks for the info.
