Update on the Mac

I decided to get the G3 running by using only the 20 GB drive, partitioned half for OS X and half for OpenBSD. After partitioning it using Disk Utility, I formatted the front half HFS+ and used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the original drive to the new partition.

Unfortunately, the cloned partition wasn't usable. Finder kept crashing on me, so I said to hell with it and got ahold of a set of Panther install CDs. So, I should have a functional OS 10.3 box shortly. After that's running and updated I'll install OpenBSD in the second partition.

Update @ 15:25 -- Now I've got the spinning beatchball o'death. Im starting to wonder if this disk is hosed. Argh!
