    Hello all,

    When I turn on this machine it displays a disk with a question mark indicating that it cannot find an OS to boot. Putting my ear to the hard drive I hear faint funny noises that the heads are trying to move but no spinning. This is not a good sign for the HD.

    Can I replace this HD with any narrow SCSI drive? I have several 1G drives that should work, right? Is there a configuration stored somewhere like a PC or can I just plug in a new drive?

    What Mac OS do I need for this machine? Will OS 9 work? Does someone have an appropriate CD I could borrow?

    Jim
