I'm buying a Powerbook 520 for writing purpouses (Microsoft Word) I think the computer includes the 7.5.1 version of the Macintosh System. Does anyone know how can I upgrade from 7.5.1 to 7.5.3 or maybe 7.5.5?
Please help I don't want to get rid of the system 7.5 because I love the old fashioned Mac System.

Apple's site for older software downloads has System 7.5.3 and the update to 7.5.5. The System 7.5.3 is a large download, but the software is free.

I do not believe that the 7.5.3 installer works as an updater, however it will do a clean install on your PowerBook.

I downloaded all the 19 files. what's next?
how can I pass this files to 19 floppies? I'm running Mac Os X on my Macbook and i also have a Floppy drive.

Each of the 19 files are sized to fit on a floppy. And you can transfer them with just one floppy, moving them one at a time. In order for the installer to work you need to get all the file to the harddrive of the 520. Once the files have been copied to the 520 double click the first file which will then create the necessary installer.

Be aware that some things on this site require Mac OS 7.6.x, and will not run under 7.5.x.
