Exactly with any machines, old dust-filled, medium old, recent, new
or smelly, shiny spanking new w/ shipping wrappers and boxes lying
besides it. All computers needs OS to become alive, even on ROMs.

Do you don't mind telling us how one build a bootable diskette for
Mac that has OS 6.0.x and 7.x.x installed on their HD? That system
folder is too big to fit on a diskette. How is this done to get it
down to size to work? I searched the 'net for that info without

That disktools diskettes I got is dumbed down and locked to a fault
and doesn't do very much besides HD rescue and HD SC init. That
disktools is stubbornly possesive of its disk even I ejected it for
another disk with different stuff.
