How do I upgrade from OS 9.0 to 10.3?
I have an iBook G3, which I tried to update years ago, ran into problems, and ended up wiping it clean and reinstalling OS 9.0 using the CD it came with. I have both CDs 1 and 2 of OS X 10.3 Install in file format only (.dmg) which it cannot read, and I doubt it would even if I burnt them onto CDs. It does not have an AirPort card (which may or may not be relevant, because it doesn't have a working browser it seems). I'm assuming I can't go straight from 9.0 to 10.3... I read that it's best to update to 9.2 first, and possibly update the firmware as well.
What approach should I take? Try to find a browser that will work (from another computer) and use a USB stick and then download updates directly to the clamshell? or could this all be done by getting everything I need on the other computer and bring things over one at a time by USB stick?
What software or whatever would I need to get me to the 9.2, and when I get there, what's would be the best way to get me to the 10.3? I have the OS X 10.3 install dvds as well, but keep in mind this only has a CD drive, not dvd (although I have a powerbook G4 and ibook G4, both not working and both with cd/dvd drives if there is anyway they might be compatible).
Is this a good question?
