Executor Officially Freeware'd

What, no news post about this? An expiration-free authentication number is now available from ARDI (or the corpse thereof, anyway). http://www.ardi.com/ardi.php Ah, what fun I once had with Executor 1.99q some ten years ago! That was back when the demo version could still read and write Mac floppies...

Ooh, a reply!

I don't see why version 2.1.3 would be of any interest to software pirates, though. Or did you have something else in mind?

Bugger alle. It works perfectly now. I guess somewhere along the way I just had to restart my computer. (Using Windows 2000, by the way.) It still doesn't seem to be able to use the ISO image, but maybe I made that wrong. By the way, does this version of Sheepshaver not have some sort of "kill&...

I guess I wasn't clear; that was the first thing I tried. The CD just gets ejected.

SheepShaver Won't Boot from my MacOS 9 CD

Well, this is frustrating... I downloaded the new 05/14/06 snapshot of SheepShaver from http://www.gibix.net/dokuwiki/en:projects:sheepshaver . I have a New World ROM that I extracted from the downloadable Apple update, and I have a nice white MacOS 9.0 CD, 691-2386-A, which should boot from any Mac...

Repository for old Virtual PC Updates?

I have a nice boxed copy of Virtual PC 2.1 here for some reason. Maybe it's not terribly useful, but it might be cool to mess around with. Anyway, archive.org tells me that the Connectix website used to carry a 2.1.3 update for Virtual PC, but unfortunately the file was not archived. Googling only t...

Of course, if you don't use a router, you'll need a crossover network cable rather than a standard patch cable to connect two computers together directly.

Yes, thank you, that was informative, particularly that bit about the drive requiring a proprietary adapter to terminate. I shall indeed investigate further. (My SCA drive is from IBM.) The other drives in the 6100 are the stock Apple parts - an Apple 300i CD-ROM drive and an Apple 500 MB 50-pin dri...

SCSI Termination in a 6100

I have a Powermac 6100 into which I would like to install a 9.1 GB SCA hard drive that fell into my hands. There are SCA (that's 80-pin SCSI) adapters aplenty on eBay; I'm actually going to have to buy a second one since the first one I bought was too tall and the Powermac's cover wouldn't fit over ...

Well, whaddya know? Stuffit Expander 5.5 works splendidly. (It then identifies the mounted hard drive as a "ShrinkWrap 3.5" image.) Disk Copy 6.1.2 also seems to work a little better than 6.3.3 in the sense that it doesn't lock up, but unlike Stuffit, it doesn't restore the items that were...

Er, yes, Disk Copy is what I used to make the image. ;) The latest version is 6.3.3, and you can still get it direct from Apple.

Manipulating NDIF (Disk Copy) Images

So, as you may recall from this thread , I was trying to back up some old Macintosh hard drives over a network using Disk Copy. I now have a 133 MB compressed read-only NDIF image on an HFV volume on my PC. The problem is, I can't seem to mount this image with Disk Copy in BasiliskII. Attempting to ...

Well, anyway, I finally got a Macintosh to talk to my PC through the Windows port of BasiliskII. I had no idea how much extra system software I needed, but with a little help from TomeViewer, all is well now. I guess it will take hours for the Macintosh to make a 240 MB read-only compressed image an...

Geez, the BeOS port doesn't have SheepNet either! At this rate I might as well stick with the Windows port.

Anyway, Netatalk installs perfectly under FC2, but nothing happens when I hook a Macintosh up (namely, through an RJ45 crossover cable).

How exactly do I make it go?

Interesting... Looks like Netatalk is even included in the Fedora Core 2 distribution. It doesn't look particularly easy to set up, though. These are mostly old Powermacs that I have on hand, so they have that built in, er, whatchamacalit... AAUI ethernet connector (for which I have an RJ45 adapter).

Mac-On-Linux? Huh? ...Oh, that's the one for PPC Linux. Any modules included with that be compiled for PPC, not x86, I suspect. All the RPMs I've seen of BasiliskII don't include sheep_net.o either. Or am I just not looking hard enough? I was actually just about to try the BeOS version of Basilisk, ...

Anyone get SheepNet working in Linux?

I need my PC to connect to a few old Macs I have on hand so that I can back up their hard drives. Unfortunately, I have been unable to successfully compile the Linux SheepNet kernel module that is necessary for BasiliskII to use AppleTalk.

Has anyone had success with this in the past? Any tips?
