    iTunes language goofy

    Sorry if this isn't the right place for this.

    Thanks All

    Thanks so much to all of you for taking the time to educate me. I really appreciate it.

    There is much to mull over. I wonder if the 9000 will boot into OS 9.2.2? I'll look in the specs on OWC....

    By the way

    By the way, how can you tell if your machine is 2x, 4x, or 8x capable?

    Also, I noticed that the 9800 has a fan on it. What does that mean for the internal environment of the box?

    Rick's verbal advice

    That was my reasoning

    Partitioning provides the least interference between the two systems, or so I've read. But then I'm kind of going on consensus here, having never had both on the same machine.

    Hi all,
