here is a link to our opac with koha1.2.3 without marc

and here is a link to our opac with koha2.2.5 with marc

but please note that we did some modifications in the to fit our library

when u megrate a non-marc koha system to a marc koha system, during the 
install process you chosse (n) when it tells you about marc, and after 
instalation you will build your marc structure from thee begining and you 
link the the non-marc old koha fields to the new one

offcourse you will miss some information if u use non-marc koha, but it's 
still a good library system

see the links above and compare for your self, but note that both systems 
are 100% different, because2.2.5 have many many new features.

i was not here when they use 1.2.3 but, while iam here we installed our 
koha2.2.5 and did it all from the beginig, we will not use the old data 
because any way we will have to re-edit every record, so why won't us start 
rebuild our system with a brand new bibligraphic discribtion plus we have 
our z3950 working great.
