|Tips To Upgrade Mac System Software
If you have a PowerPC and you don't have the latest Mac OS (operating system) - version 9.0 in autumn of 1999 - you might want to upgrade for more features, increased speed from more "native" code, and enhanced stability.
1. Purchase the upgrade software you need. Make sure your computer fits the system requirements for the system software version you're installing. Older Macs can't install the newest systems.
2. Back up your hard disk before you install the software.
3. Start up the computer from the upgrade CD. Put the CD in the CD-ROM drive and start the computer while holding down the C key on your keyboard.
4. Double-click on the CD icon and double-click on the installer.
5. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation. One decision to make is whether to use the Easy or Custom installation. The Easy Install option makes sure you have all the files you need, so it's the safest. Use the Custom installation if you are certain you won't need a particular feature.
6. Reboot the computer when prompted.
7. Make sure all functions work, especially printer and Internet connections.
