Ack, an old Mac accessing the HD over serial? That's even uglier than what
I'm refering to, that sounds worse than going off of Floppies. The HD I'm
talking about is a 20Mb disk that connects through the floppy connecter and
as such the Mac can boot off of the HD. I'm possitive that it was intended
for the Mac 128 and 512 since the Mac Plus has SCSI, but the one time I've
had one it was attached to a Mac Plus. Unfortunatly I no longer have it, I
got it last year when I was putting together a pair of Mac Plus systems for
my cousins 18 month old twins (they really love those computer :^).
