Just curious.  
If you head over to PPC Macs on FB if you need the latest Flash internet plug in..for your older Mac.

I've got one for an OS9 box, and a Powerbook I bought to try Linux on and will try MorphOS on once it's out.

Nice .. I might do the same in the future.. but running my(orig owner) PB G4 stock with 10.5.8.  Not willing to hack my PB. But maybe a 2nd hand one :).

In order to view embedded videos on FB you need the latest flash plug-in..

I have been trying to install MOS on macmini, but the dvd drive seems broken, it won't boot it.
shame Morphos don't support install from USB disk :/
Better sorry than worry.

Define "seems"... open her up(if you haven't already done so).. could be that the cable came loose from the logic board.  Mine seemingly stopped working with a CD in it, and even though it sounded like it was moving(making noises etc.) something was amiss.  I opened it up and reseated the flat delicate ribbon cable and it started working again.  Even the Genius told me the SuperDrive needed to be replaced.  But they do fail eventually(like most things mechanical) and honestly I had ordered one from Apple before I looked at it and it wasn't that much money.  Needless to say I did not pick up the one I ordered from Apple and that was over a year ago.  Still working with out fail.

well its been long time since I tried installing MOS. iirc, the drive would read dvds (now and then) and I had tried 'laser lens cleaner cd'.
unfortunately, opening macmini is not so easy. one needs 'special' tool, I don't have anything similar.
Better sorry than worry.
