mactinker had trouble on 22 Jun 2007
Hi! XPF was recommended to me by a list mod to help in installing 10.3 on a beige G3 AIO. I have asked Apple and they tell me that 10.2 will install and run on this Mac just fine. I went to the list in question looking for 10.2. But the list mod was very encouraging about the superiority of 10.3 over 10.2, so I tried to dl XPF4.

I got a page of very strange code, and no actual dl at all. Thought you'd want to know about that.

Three questions:

1. Does anyone know what I might have done wrong in the dl process? I clicked the "Download now" button, that's all, and all that appeared to be necessary. Or maybe it can't dl to OS9?

2. If I can get hold of a set of 10.2 CDs, do I still need XPF? (Apple says no, just fyi, but if *users* have different actual experience, that's helpful to know.)

3. (Slightly OT) If I could just go altogether with X I wouldn't ask this, but: Does anyone have an opinion whether 10.3 is really so much better than 10.2 that I need to add to the complication of making the switch? It's going to be tight in the first place, as I need to partition the HD so I can have one side w/ OSX and the other w/ OS9, because I actually do use the built-in floppy and zip drives, both unsupported under all versions of X. Can't go get a USB floppy drive, because the AIO does not have USB ports, which are required by 10.3.

Thanks for your time.
