Unfortunately, it only runs under 9, and hasn't been updated for X, so you'll have to boot into 9 if you can.
If it passes that test suite, it's A-OK, and you've got no worries about the RAM.
OK, will do. The RAM in there is slower than the installed RAM so I was considering changing it anyway. Im going to check out Crucial.com and see what theyre charging for 256Mb PC100. At least I know their RAM is CL2, unlike the CL3 that PNY sold me.
