Currently my MAC has got OS 8.x installed but what I aim is to get rid of it. One more question: so far I have found quik-2.1-4.ydl4.ppc.rpm is the latest release and it belongs to Yelow Dog Linux distro. However I wonder how to install RPM package where I have no possibility to run any UX system on my "Old World Macintosh".? Correct me if I am wrong, but as I understood "Old World Macintosh" are able to boot only OS up to 8.x .
