    Does anyone know where to find a rev. "b" or "c" rom chip for a beige g3 mac? I could only find one seller for this item and he wanted $175.00.
    That's out! Without this chip, I can only hook one ide drive per channel and cannot upgrade the processor.

    OWC had them, but word is that they have been out for a month or so. You will probably only be able to get one through the used market. You'd think there would be someone out there with a dead motherboard selling off the remains...

    What I usually do when I want a hard to find part like this is post to the news groups. In this case you would post to comp.sys.mac.wanted and (the xxxx represents that there are several groups in that heirarchy and I can't remember the specific one(s) that you would want).

    Post a Subject line that reads something like: WTB: Rev. B/C ROM for Beige G3, $35. Of course you adjust that last bit to whatever you would like to spend. You can leave the price off, but I find I get better results if I put that in.

    Then in the body use some complete sentences and explain what you want and any terms, e.g. you'll pay shipping etc. Be sure to use your correct e-mail address in the reply to field. If you spam proof your address most people won't bother to de-spoof it just to email you.
