        I've got a very similar setup. NeXT '040 cube, NS3.3 w/Y2k patches,
crossover ethernet cable to a Mac Powerbook 3400 running MacOS 8.1. The
NeXT will respond the Mac *if* the Mac is already connected and running
when the NeXT boots. Of course the Mac has to be set up for TCP/IP to the
ethernet port, etc. I usually hit the NeXT with Fetch 3.0.3 from the Mac
first, but I have also succeeded by firing up CAPer on the NeXT first then
looking in Chooser..Appleshare on the Mac.
        The NeXT setup is the same as it was in my office, on an ethernet
internet hookup, so it's possible there are some settings in there not the
same as yours. For example, during the NeXT boot process, I get some
message about "not being able to find a server ... hit c to continue or see
my administrator" (or similar) and have to hit c to continue. If that's the
problem, email me direct and I'll post the NeXT Networking setup. for a more
recent version? But one step at a time, I guess.

True as far as I know. My 040 non-turbo Cube has 16 30-pin slots, all
currently stuffed with 4M simms for a total of 64M.

        I don't know if this is the best price, but I've dealt with
Christian before and it was a delight. "Will this drive work in my NeXT?"
"Probably, but hang on a second - I'll just pull another NeXT off the
shelf, open it up, plug in the drive, format it, write to and read from it
... yep, seems to work. You want it?" *That's* what I call service!

How can one put a price on jewels like this?
