OK, I asked the wrong question, so will try again:
What is the difference between the "Install for this Particular Macintosh" installation option under System 7 and the default "Easy Install"? Do these amount to the same thing, or rather different things?
There is a reason for asking these questions. I would like to get System 7.5 (which I find very stable on 68k hardware) onto a powerbook ram disk (under Maxima with 32 MB ram in a PB 270c :b&w: ), but would like to know what the best way is of keeping the installation as small as possible, without stripping down to the bare essentials.
In short, what I want is a complete installation, but without ppc code, etc. Am I as well to opt for the Easy Install, or do I choose a custom installation and "Install for this Mac"?
