My Dad's Computer Disaster:

Well, it wasn't the disk. The disks I brought up didn't work at all. Fortunately, I had made a copy (probably with a PC at work) a while back that did work (mostly). My best guess at this point is that it is power supply. I brought the old G3 upgraded Powermac 8500 back to my labs in Houston for testing. He is currently set up with his old 6100. It is painfully slow (not too painfully tho), but he is able to get his grades off and read and write email with it. It also has a brand new 18 gig scsi drive that was supposed to go into the 8500. I may get my little sister's G3 upgrade card, VGA adapter and RAM from her 6100 and send that up to Shreveport. Unfortunately that won't solve the problem of no USB port, which means no digital pics and no USB printer for Dad. If anyone knows of an old-style serial to USB converter, I would appreciate a reference. Everything I see converts USB to serial for attaching old peripherals to new computers, not old computers to new peripherals.
