Hi guys :)
Thank you to everyone for all the help :)
I got the power adapter yesterday... Yippee!!...PLAY TIME :)))
Well after abit of mucking around trying to get the PowerBook to boot up, I found that it's a bit temperamental with the connection in the back of the laptop??? I think i've found the position it likes but not always :)
The details on the PowerBook are:
Mac OS X VER'10.4
PROCESSOR 500MHz POWER PC G3
Memory 384 MB SCRAM
CPU Type: PowerPC 750 (83.0)
Bus speed 100MHz
Boot ROM Ver': 4.1.8f5
One problem I've come across is that when I went to check for updates it asks me to login my passwaord??? as there are update it wants.I came across a couple of things on the internet as I couldn't find anything about it here and wondered if i should try them.
The first one I couldn't find the link to so I've just copy it to here for you to check out to see if I'm on the right path :)
Recover Apple Mac Keychain password
Posted by hsukumar on 15/04/2009
Go to your home folder, find the Library folder and drag the Library>Keychains folder to the trash.
Restart the computer and a new keychain will be created using your current system password.
If you have forgotten you whole system password then you will need to reset it using your System Restore disk
Is your “Keychain password” the same as your “Administrator password”, the one you use to install software? Or do you have a user account a Mac OS X machine where someone else is the system administrator?
If you’re the administrator and you’ve forgotten the password to the login keychain and the administrator password, I am afraid you’ve permanently lost the contents of your keychain. However, you can recover from the situation without reinstalling the entire OS.
First, reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X disc:
1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc and restart the computer.
2. When you hear the startup tone, hold down the C key until you see the spinning gear.
3. When the Installer appears, choose Utilities > Reset Password.
4. Follow the onscreen instructions to change the password.
5. Quit the Installer and restart your computer while holding down the mouse button to eject the disc.
After the Mac has restarted, you’d normally now need to change the password for the keychain called “login” to match the new admin password, but since you’ve forgotten it you’ll need to delete the old login keychain. Do the following steps:
1. Open Keychain Access, located in /Applications/Utilities.
2. Choose Keychain List from the Edit menu.
3. Select the “login” keychain.
4. Click Delete (the “-” button).
The login keychain will now be empty. The next time the keychain is needed you’ll have to manually enter the appropriate password and then you’ll be asked if you want to store the password in the keychain
Thanks again guys :)))
Looking forward to hearing from you soon

Hi Mayer :))
Thanks heaps for your help :))))
Wow!!! MMMmmm I have NO Idea at this stage what they are running as I haven't got the power cables for them yet :(( I'm hoping to have them by friday (PLAY TIME!) so I can give you the Operating systems then. As for what I'm planning on running...I have NO Idea mate on that one either as I'm not up on the mac Operating systems...HELP!!! I'm hoping to do some video editing and Photo restoration work as a starting point to get use to the mac editing programs before I get a large mac for the office editing machine. Any suggestion on this would be really appreciated mate. The more I read up on the different operating systems the more confused I get about it :))
Thanks heaps for your time Mayer and I'm looking forward to hearing your idea and guidance on all this.

Hi Annie, Just been rereading your post and realized I didn't give you the guides for the Pismo(7572) so I'm including them now. You will find the Pismo the easiest laptop Apple made to work on--a great beginning unit. As to the drives just partition them with the first partition of 120 GB, format the whole drive and install the OS on the first partition. Use the larger second partition for data. For your units I would recommend either 10.3 or 10.4 for the operating system. Max out the memory in any case. Enjoy learning about Macs. Ralph
