Mac Portable Progress

    Well, I made some progess with the Mac Portable today. Although I still
don't know what the Sad Mac code $0F means (all the FAQs that I've read skip
from $0E to $10).

    Here's what I've found:

    1. The portable won't accept a 1.44mb disk created with a PowerMac
but that contains System 6.0.1 (I get the disk with the "X" in it). I
thought that the drive was a 1.44mb disk.

    2. It will not accept a 400k disk.

    3. It will not accept an 800k disk formatted by an SE/30 which
contains System 6.0.1.

    4. It *will* accept an 800k installer disk, but it complains that the
disk contains a "minimal" script file, and that I need a "full" install
script. Arrrgh...

    Time to hit
