AppleTalk on the hoof

Great brag today. Two ROM 03 Apple IIgses with 1MB RAM, keyboards, two
sets of two each of 5.25" and 3.5" UniDisks and a nice composite monitor. But
that's not the interesting part.

The interesting part is the Mac SE/30 that came with them. It runs System
6 (cough) and AppleShare File Server. It looks like this was the file
server for the IIgs systems, since the disk is full of AppleWorks, Oregon
Trail and ProDOS boot images. :-)

How do I get the IIgses to speak AppleTalk? I have the parts for building
the network, and I know IIgs systems can do it (I've seen it), but
obviously I need some additional software which unfortunately did NOT
come with the package. This might be stretching it, but can they network
boot? The IIgs Control Panel (CTRL-OPTION-RESET) yielded nothing too helpful.

By the way, total cost was $0.00 ;-) (Well, I did have to buy an ADB
mouse for the Mac, which was missing too. $40?! Highway robbery. But
I shan't complain too much :-)
