Here's everything you need to get that ole
Yes, Virginia, you CAN get an old black and
white Mac on the web. This Doc Maker application gives you all the
juicy details. Mentioned in Mac Addict and MacUser magazines. Over
20,000 downloads so far.
NOTE: This is broken up into three 800k
disc images. You'll need Apple's Disc Copy (comes with every Mac
OS since 7.5 or so)
to mount the images, then drag the contents of the images to 800k
floppies, then run the installer just as you would any other
software. This will only install on all 68k Macs running system
7.x with 4 megs of ram or more.
