Hey Someone gave us another working "quicksilver" Does anyone have one of these? Or Knows what their capable off.. We have one already but that's dedicated and modified for a specific task.
Thsi one's for experimentation ....We have spare memory, and hard drives and family pack software to put in.
My Questions are:
Can We boot off the other drives ..We can boot in classic and OS 10
If I put Linux on one of three drives is can I boot into linux or do i need a utility
Are there any companies making inexpensive usb 2.0/firewire 400/800 cards? They didn't give me a budget for this one so its coming out of pocket or the cookie jar.
I have a video microscope, analog/digital lab sensors, and a bunch or pasco scientifc modules. I divided up all the manuals to the different study teams so they will have to give me presantations or their equipment or software.
I'm thinking of putting this one in the classroom my olders sciencekids use. Also letting them install hardware and software. We put a two year old PC and some spare parts in the class last year any my tech savy kids fixed it up really great.
They have permission to work on only the quicksilver and the pc .. they can't touch the other computers. And I want them to work this as a joint project ... The Tech Kids teaching the not so tech kids "Using Plain English" I've taught my tech kids not to talk down at their peer ... because "paybacks a bitch" when their doing their outdoor activities I taught the little outdoorspersons to not talk down at their peers.
I have the rest of the year with these kids for this project.
Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated?
Thanks ahead of time
