I honestly forget if it was a DVD drive or just CD... or CD writer.
I also don't recall how much RAM it has, or how fast it is.  I _kinda_
doubt such an old beast could run 10.4.2 easily.  But then, I know nearly
nil about Mac OS X.  (All I know is it was running 10.3.7... and that
the latest Tux Paint CANNOT run on 10.2.8, which was a mistake!  D'oh!)
