For anything outside of gnutella, you really need to upgrade to OSX to get such options such as bit torrent. The only other alternative I can think of is Myster http://www.mysternetworks.com/ but that network is quite small. But was still active last year when I tried the program last. I used Myster before using LW 4-5 yrs ago. There's still an OS 9 version available. AFAIK the program stopped development a couple of years ago.

Dear Lord of the Rings,

I just signed up to this site and have no idea how to post a question. My question sort of relates to this question here.

This is the scenerio. I have an PowerbookPC G4 and I want to load Tiger OSX 10.4 onto my older iMac slot loading G3 which uses OS 9.2 and has a CD drive and reads DVD's. What I've been doing up to this point and failing is I've been downloading torrents on my Powerbook (ie. OSX 10.4 iso's, retail, etc whatever I can find). Then I've tried burning them to CDR and DVDR using both Toast and Disc Utility and then when I put them in my iMac G3 drive they will read and open up but when I try to install the OSX it says the file that created it cannot be found. Is there a way around this. I've also tried it by restarting the iMac and holding down the C key while it opens.

So today I installed Limewire OS for Classic and downloaded some more OSX 10.4 zip files etc. and they show up as a white sheet of paper on my desktop and of course won't open up.

Help?? Or do I just have to go buy a Mac OSX 10.4 install disc?

Thanks,

Spiral Girl

We can't discuss this here in public. This is known as Warez.

The white icons is because you don't have a program that recognises the files. You'd need a unzip program. In OS 9 I liked this freeware program MacZip: http://www.tucows.com/preview/206993 & just drag & drop files onto them to either zip them or unzip them. I found it more reliable than stuffit expander & stuffit deluxe which wasn't always readible by windows users.

You'd need to send me a personal message by clicking on my username.

BTW which country are you from? My guess is Canade. BTW be careful of Shaw. They are reknown to shape bandwidth of those who use excessive amounts with p2p programs.

No much you can do with OS 9 (or classic).
Download the classic LW version there http://www.limewire.com/english/cont...oadfree2.shtml

No torrent program on OS9 known.
--------------------

Je suis maintenant sur le system Mac OS X ...
ou est le Lime wire software correspondant ???
ou je peux trouver programmes importants pour ce system ...
Merci...
