Software I have for this machine


This machine has been upgraded to a PowerMac 5500/225mhz, 64 megs of RAM, and a 4 gig hard drive. This was done by swapping the motherboards. It also has two Ethernet ports, one through the COMM slot, the other a PCI card filling its one slot. There is also a video in/out capture card.

I also have a 56k modem attached. The ZIP drive is also attached, as well as a SyQuest EZ 135, a SyQuest EX Flyer 230, and a Visoneer PaperPort Strobe scanner. These are all attached through the SCSI chain.

Here are photos of the SyQuest drives hooked up to this machine. I left the other items in the photo to give a sense of size. The EZFlyer 230 is on the left, the EZ Drive 135 on the right in gray.
