Hi Y'all!
Just a short note if it can help.
I'm a happy upgrader of a PPC7500/100 to G3/400. Had no glitch since two months of daily use, didn't loose a single file or hardware. Just knocking on wood. Here's the config, I'd be happy to provide more details to users with similar situation.
Basically I installed a new crescendo G3/400 and increased the RAM from 16 to 184 using RAM from different computers (no conflict reported so far, and all applications seem OK with that), and an orange 2USB/2FW PCI card. This is stable, supports different kinds of peripherals - from an old jaz to new zip[250 and a neo 20Gb jukebox (usb). Next will be a cd-rw to replace that snail-fast 4x...when money comes back. It also supports a flat screen from viewsonic (viewpanel vp150) which has replaced my old formac 17" trinitron. Oh I forgot to mention; I mainly do graphics with it (photoshop and qurakxpress) ; the nikon scanner coolscan 2000 is ok but I'm about to put a video card soon because the the overall display is a bit slow. Also the overall cost is less than getting as new G3/G4 - but I must say that I didn't have to buy the screen and the 4.5gb hard drive. Still, I'm happy to be able to use a product which had probably (correct me if i' wrong) the shortest market life ever in the apple cpu (8mo, 1995-6).
Cheers and good luck to all updaters!
