Anyway, I finally got OS X installed on my mom's machine. This makes it finally a useful machine to me. :) :) :)
Plus, I happily found that it keeps all the old documents as well. YAY! Though, since the old OS was OS9.01 or whatnot, it won't run stuff in classic mode. Oh well, them's the breaks, but not a big loss.
In other news, grandma's toe has been removed, and she is doing well.
