Hi guys,

My friend wants to get Panther on his G3 450...

anyone currently running this, or knows how it performs?

I'm running Panther on a G3/400 w/640 MB RAM and it runs just fine - his machine will handle it just fine.

Panther runs very well, better than Jaguar, on my iMac G3/400 and my PowerBook Pismo (G3/400), both with 384 megs RAM. Advise your friend to go ahead and install it.

I tried to install it for him.... its his first mac,
and I got a kernael panic before the end of CD 1.

The original system was supposed to be erased already but was still there so i am reformatting the harddrive, and then he is going to phone me for more directions later.

I left him to watch the machine


anyway

have you run into anything that I should be aware of for this installation.

my bad config. is 400 G3 SCSI drive 4.3G
