Took my powerbook to the local Mac Tech guy who only works on Macs and he didn't indicate the Lombard can have more than 384 ram.
Also the diagnosis on why my Lombard won't run 10.2 is because it is running a little warm. According to the tech guy, my machine is running a little warmer than normal (judging from holding his hands over the opening where the keypad fits with the keypad removed). This he tells me is an indication that it is going to go completely sooner than later.
He switched out the ram and that didn't help. So that means some other component could be not up to par causing 10.2 to mega crash on me.
Now to find an ethical way to get rid of it for the most money.
