One of those Sonnett PDS upgrade cards that combined an accelerator with an ethernet adapter? If so, very nice.
Like Luddite, I'd start off by looking at Netatalk. If that doesn't deliver the goods, don't worry too much. You can't generate masses of data on a 68K Mac, so an external hard drive or CD burner is a cheap alternative.

I believe you need Diskcopy 6 to be able to handle this. You can download it from the Apple web site.
Opps, also just had a thought - how did you get the image files to your LCIII - I wonder if they have lost some important info in translation (creator/filetype etc).
I'm, still puzzled, JohnneyGrey. Did you generate the 19 floppy disks required for s System 7.5.3 installation?

No, I got it from Apple's download site. It seems to be 19 parts of one large .smi file, probably a CD image.
