Thanks, I'll have a look and see what I can find on their site. I think 7.5.3 must be the version that the Blackbirds shipped with. I remember my 520c had 7.1.x installed when I bought it new, but had a 7.5.x image on the Hard Drive so that you could install it. You don't really want to run 7.5.x on a 4MB Mac, so the first thing I did was buy a 16MB RAM expansion (for, <gulp> about $600).
