Re: Unix Root/Shared Folder HELP

No shared folder, but a similar feature is available in SheepShaver for Windows. From the setup manual:: In the GUI, Volumes tab: - Enable “My Computer” icon on your Mac desktop (external file system) : when checked, SheepShaver gives access to host drives. - Mount drives : shows the host drives tha...

Re: SheepSaver running off boot image but won't install OS

The system will only run from a read-only CD. Our SheepShaver for Windows setup guide tells you: Note: If you are using a CD image, you may need to right-click the image (in Windows), and set it to “read only” in the “properties” menu. This will solve the “The system software on the startup disk onl...

Re: SheepSaver running off boot image but won't install OS

You are using a bare OS9 boot disk, probably downloaded from Redundant Robot. It is a limited OS9 System Folder installation only and does not contain an installer You will need a Mac installation disk image, like the retail international English Mac OS 9.0.4 install CD image that can be downloaded ...

Maybe you are confused by the, not so obvious, dialog in System 6. The top text box in the dialog is in fact a drop down menu that enables you to start navigating to other disks.

Quit all applications running on your MacBook, then restart your MacBook and launch SheepShaver without first starting other applications. 2. In SheepShaver preferences set Ram Size to 256 or 512 (MB) (Note that after any ...

Weird indeed. I assume that SheepShaver is set up as described in our setup manual with SheepShaver application and all additional files inside the SheepShaver folder. Because you did the setup while running the SheepShaver executable, paths to files in prefs may be different from when you would hav...

Re: sharing

No need to move the post. BasiliskII and SheepShaver share much code and thus share many of these features. Apparently this forwarding feature is much older than we knew.
