Can I do ????

Recommended Posts

Someone offered me a old iMac not sure what version, it is an old all in one which looks like a thickish flat screen. Can I put a linux on the hdd ? Can I use Slax or any Live CD distro from a usb stick with no fiddling ?

Tried that once. As far as I remember you will need the first boot floppy. and then everything has to go in in raw-write.

Hopefully I will be corrected as I have an 1986 Apple Mackintosh SE M5011.

1Mb ram...800K Drive ..20SC Hard-Drive....

The usb sockets are unusual as they look like mouse/keyboard sockets.

An adapter can be got to facilitate the newer usb connectors.

Keep us posted as these machines run on 2amps and are sooooo economical to run .
