Mac OS X and Sonnet Upgrades Redux

by Brian Jepson

A few weeks ago, I wrote a weblog entry describing my Mac OS X woes. In that entry, I explained how I couldn't run Mac OS X on my Power Macintosh 7500 with a Sonnet G3 upgrade. Although Sonnet still hasn't released support for this upgrade, I am running Mac OS X on it right now (I'm typing this entry in the preview edition of Microsoft Internet Explorer).

In my previous weblog entry, I suggested that Ryan Rempel's Installation Instructions for Mac OS X OldWorld Support were best left to the adventurous and brave. After using Ryan's instructions, I was struck by how easy it was to perform the install. Of course, your mileage may vary, but if you have time and good backups, give it a whirl.
