How do I open a Power Macintosh 5500/250
I'm the proud owner of a 1997 Power Macintosh 5500/250. It's the Director's Edition, meaning it has a bit of extra graphics RAM and a Video Capture Card, which is nice, however the CD-ROM drive doesn't show up in the System Profiler (Mac OS 8.6).
From what I can see, there's about three points of entry, but rather than making a mess, I just want to get to the IO and check if there's a dodgy cable or something inside.
I have the OS disks and an upgrade to 9.2.2 which should bring this machine up to its latest it can handle, and then I was thinking of looking at a PowerPC Linux Distro that would get it on the net, kinda.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
Here's a picture of the beast in question:
Is this a good question?
