Hi Bill,

I copied the new Classic standalone to a USB Zip Drive and then  
reconnected the drive to the G4, in turn copying the file to the G4. I  
hadn't refined the app very much with its own icon, etc. Just used all  
the default settings. But thanks, this gives me something to keep in  
mind as I go forward.

In order to get a truly valid comparison in file size, I should create  
an HC standalone, which, obviously, for like reasons would be "much"  
larger.
