On the desktop background, you have a button saying "Macintosh HD" it will probably tell you after opening that. What mac do you have btw?

Well dont worry about finding out how to find your memory capacity I figured it out. Its a macintosh powerbook G3, I bought it off a friend for 40 euros because it's pretty old but I thought you can't really go wrong for the money, it works perfect etc. But the thing is I have found out the hard drive is TINY! The capacity is 6 gb and it saids I (he) have used 4 gb but I really dont no what on.
My plan is to either find out how to free as much memory as possible and just use it like that or just buy a new HD but I would rather save my money for now.

Well a PC that old HDD didnt get all to much bigger in the powerbook days at least for macs which have always seemed to have tiny hard drives, its not worth spending money on to get a bigger one.
