Moving to Version 10.3 from Mac OS 9.x.x or Earlier

Moving up to Mac OS X from earlier versions offers many benefits (you will learn about many of them throughout this book), but all this gain requires some pain, that being the pain of installing and learning to use a brand-new operating system. This appendix helps you with the first part, whereas the rest of the book helps you with the second. Following a logical sequence of steps results in the best chance for you to install Mac OS X without any problems. The major steps you should take are the following:

1.
Assess your Mac to ensure that it can handle Mac OS X.

2.
Make sure that your Mac's firmware is up-to-date (if not, update it).

3.
Prepare a Mac OS X volume on which to install the OS.

4.
Run the Mac OS X Installer.

5.
Configure the OS.
