Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 2.793 GHz / 1534 MB
As per title. Computer starts but is without os. google says os 7.1.

Have yet to find it. Needs to be on floppy as computer is without cd rom.

Is there a way to download it and put it on floppy using a dell with xp?

Any thoughts on what type of nic card to connect to the internet would also be great. Using dsl

I know it's a clunker.....:-)

You should be able to install OS 7.5.3 available here:

Many older Mac's came with an AAUI-15 Ethernet Port, if installed you will need an AAUI-15 to RJ45 Adapter:

This is not a clunker! A REAL mac question and I missed it!!! This is turning into a once a year kinda thing.

Oh well at least someone was able to help, and skip system 7,1 fyi, just download and install system 7.5.3, or 7.5.5. Links were already posted I see, good work!

clunker.. grrrr...
