    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is the place to go for info on Macs, memory support and OS. As long as it runs Snow Leopard then this will be the OS to go for as it was stable and ran pretty smooth. You can get it from torrents or newsgroups and may need Transmac to create a bootable media from the DMG image.

    Thanks to evilsatan
