Equipment: Six Apple PowerMac G4 computers (each with 1.5 GB RAM, SuperDrive, 867 MHz CPU, NVIDIA GeForce2 MX graphics card, 80 GB hard drive, and a 250-MB ZIP drive, running MacOSX 10.1), Eight Windows 2000 computers (each with Pentium III 931-MHz CPU and 256 MB RAM), an Epson Stylus Photo 1280 photo-quality printer, and scanners (more details). We will be getting a Nikon Super Coolscan scanner.

Each student will gain access to an EECS account, allowing them to log into the UNIX, Mac OS X, and Windows 2000 computers in the lab. (For Windows 2000 systems, make sure the "EECS" domain is selected on the login screen.)

In http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/connecting.html, there is a
lot of information about logging into the UNIX systems and
connecting to the UNIX home directory while logged into a

Computer Help

If you need help with the computers, you may request an appointment with Steve and he can help you out. If there are a lot of people who want to learn how to use Photoshop and the lab equipment, he will set up office hours.

Sessions 9 and 10 have some very useful information on using the computers, particularly on scanning your slides and getting your slide files off the Mac OS 9 computer.

EECS has technical documentation on our lab and the Macintoshes.


(Thanks to Kevin Mullally, Nathan Hunsperger, and Bem Ajani Jones-Bey of EECS Instructional Services for setting up the laboratories!)
