Well - I followed those instructions to the letter, and the G4 gets a bomb message half way through the extensions loading, citing an 'unimplemented trap' or something. And this machine has very,...

No - that doesn't work. The machine freezes just after startup.

Incidentally - how are you supposed to press the...
