Hey there, I'd like to put Puppy on an old world mac... this is the machine I have, and I want to use is as a server (if possible) for a test run of a website. If not possible, I'd like to use it as place to put my photos and such, so they don't slow down and clog up my other boxes...

I understand that you can't do a CD install on an Old World mac, but I haven't been able to find out how to actually install Puppy on one, anyway...

I'm sorry if this has been covered before, I searched the archives a few times, Googled it, and read the fine manual, and I couldn't find the answer... Rolling Eyes

There is some interest in a Mac Puppy and Puppy does run on Mac x86 emulators - that for obvious reasons is not very efficient. I suggest you or those interested

I'm afraid that you are out of luck on that one. As lobster mentioned, you can use an emulator such as VirtualPC to run Puppy on a Mac but it would be VERY slow on that computer. Puppy should also run without an emulator on the new Intel Macs, but it will not run natively on a PPC based Mac such as yours. You would be better off finding an old PII somewhere and using Puppy on that. Another option would be to use a PPC based Linux such as YellowDog, but it will be quite slow as well on your old computer.
