Default Another DAE problem

I'm trying to get protools free to run on a friends mac, a 7200/120 with around 180 Mb RAM running 8.6. As usual, DAE is freezing up. I've uninstalled, reinstalled.....same problem. When I went to the preferences folder to trash all the digi and DAE pref's, they were not there. Could this be the problem, or is it an extensions conflict? What is the basic ext. setup for protools free?

PTF ain't gonna run on a 120mhz 604. I tried it on my 8500/120, and while it did launch it took about 5min just to draw the mix window. [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

The 7200 isn't a good machine to upgrade either. You'd be better off to look for a 7/8/9500 or 7/8/9600. They're pretty cheap these days, and will run PTF well with a G3 card and a couple 128MB RAM sticks. The towers also have plenty of room inside to run more drives internally.

I run an 8600 with a G3/400, 576MB. As long as I don't go crazy with the time domain plugs (delay, reverb) it does fine with 8 tracks.
