Help with Mac Plus

Another thing to consider is that the Mac allocates a max amount of memory for each program. If this "partition" is too small the program will not run regardless of the amount of memory in the machine. To view and/or change the memory setting for a program select it's icon and pick the File->Get Info menu item. A dialog will be displayed showing current memory requirements. These values may be changed to increase the partition available for the program.

as specified before, if the "about this mac" doesnt show it, you may have to
remove the case and look at the simms. plus models came with 1 meg standard
in 4 256k simms. other mem configurations are 2 1meg simms and 2 256k ones
for 2.5 meg and 4 1meg simms for a total of 4 which is what my platinum mac
plus has. i've noticed two mac plus designs; one in the apple //e beige
colour and the other in corporate gray. i presume they are identical though.
