Sun Remarketing in Smithfield Utah still has MacWrite and MacPaint for
the 512 and I think they have an agreement allowing them to produce
copies of MAC OS 3.2 on 400k floppies. They did for me, anyway. Just
copied it. Good on them. They have a page, I just dunno what it is.

> platinum plus with 4 meg works good. i noticed the system board on this mac

> way too easy. this must be a later model board that my original platinum plus

> mac 512k model. boots ok, but when accessing a disk with the noisy floppy
> drive, the screen narrows and gets a sad mac with f0064 or similar. sounds

> mac se shell in excellent shape. i might swap my beat up se into this better

> also got some 400k floppy drives and an apple personal modem which plugs into
