FW800 boot only OS X Macs include Classic 9 but will not boot 9 natively. Most 9 apps run in Classic perfectly. You will still have to pay a little more to get the FW800 models. But you could easily add a FW 800 PCI card to the cheap dual 1.25 MDD @ $1599 to have that capability. That is the best deal. A FW 800 PCI card is going to cost you less than $50. kunga10 (AIM) On Wednesday, July 16, 2003, at 12:03 PM, Ron Michael wrote: > I'm still confused about the "boot only OSX" Macs.
