Default Help with Digi 001/Beige G3?

Hi…I would like some guidance…I have a very sketchy computer knowledge and am new to all this… but this is what I’ve got and what I would like to do…

I currently own a beige G3 desktop 233mhz with 192mb of ram. For reasons of budget, simplicity, familiarity but most importantly the ability to easily share sessions with a friend overseas who runs Digi 001 and pro-tools LE 5.1 I’ve decided to buy the same system as well.
I’m aware of the compatibility issues with my beige G3 and the Digi 001/PT LE5.1 package and my intention is to upgrade to a G4 in six months so I can run the set-up to it’s full potential (thanks to these forums, and Digi-Designs warnings, when running the system with my beige G3 I’m prepared firstly, for the occasional DAE error to pop up, secondly, for the system to run quite slowly and thirdly, to being limited in the number of plug-ins I can run at the same time)…

O.K. so that’s where I’m up to and this is where I’m really in need of some good guidance (in layman’s terms if possible!)…

1) I know I need to update my Mac OS from 8.6 to 9.0.4 but how do I do that?
2) I know I will need another large capacity hard-drive for my audio files etc that is compatible with my intended set-up…what is the best option, should I install another drive internally or should I get an external SCSI drive? (Whatever that is!)…What’s a good brand? (The Pro-Tools SCSI package offered on the site seems very expensive)
3) Are there any other compatibility issues with my intended set-up that any one has come across?

Best Wishes, cheers and thanks to any of you who can help out!

I have Beige G3 MT new cpu overclocked to 501mhz, 640 mb o ram, OS 9.04 PTLE 5.1
My system is pretty solid, have the error every so often, mainly on HUGE sessions, ie 24 tracks 10 plus minutes and LOADS of plugins...
Buy a zif upgrade G3 500, PTLE does not take advantage of G4 altivec...so no need for that now. Also, purchase a pci ide controllor and get a HUGE 40gig ide drive, these are cheep!
oh yeah....more RAM too!! 512mb is good.
Beige G3 w/ ROM revision A, which yours and mine have, does not support more than 2 devices on the ide bus.
Also, DO NOT USE 48K as a sample rate!!! This will cause 6045 errors....
Trim down your extension set BIGTIME!!!
