Does anyone know if OS9 install disc will work on G3, G4 iMacs? I seen one on ebay and it claims you can use it to install it on them.

I'm currently running a netinst of Debian Squeeze with Fluxbox WM and getting disappointed that scrolling up & down in firefox plus dragging windows is not moving in a smooth fashion.

I've added another 256mb of memory for a total of 512mb and still having the same effect.

I'm going to install a full version of Debian with LXDE desktop and see how that goes. Maybe using the netinst I'm missing something for it. If this doesn't work I'm going to try Ubuntu.

The OS9 retail installation disk will definitely work on your iMac G3. I have the same one as you, and it worked on mine.

Thnx Fox. I guess it would be best and safe to get the retail version. I'll keep checking ebay.

I'm still waiting to find a deal for an OS 9 retail cd, they want too much for it imho on ebay but I will keep looking.

I finally installed Debian with xfce2 instead of lxde, which I wanted but xfce installed by default. The scrolling effect is still there but not as bad as it was with the netinstall installation.

I'll see how long I can take it before trying Ubuntu and see if it has a different effect with scrolling.
