    2. Mac II, Quadra & Centris

      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • You can change the name of the icon in the Finder without, apparently breaking things (I just tried).  It doesn't affect UNIX paths.    
    • The same thing used to happen to me with my Dayna ethernet PC card with PowerBook 1400. I think it has something also to do with the presence of Alternate Ethernet not being available prior to the machine checking for it's local network connection, so it simply defaults to regular Printer Port local talk.
    • Why would you want to do that? That would cause a large confusion.   Do you want to want to type your paths as: HALexample/path/ UNIXexample/path/ Fink-Nottleexample/path/   That is not how the POSIX standard works for absolute path. For absolute path, the path needs to start with 1-2 forward slashes.
    • Dumb question, but here you go:   The default name for the main A/UX drive is "/". This for obvious reasons does not seem especially exciting. Can the drive name be changed to something else, say "HAL", "UNIX", or "Fink-Nottle", without causing a UNIX meltdown?
    • Old thread, but I've been using System Picker, which not only allows you to boot from the MacPartition, but also allows you to copy the contents to a folder on another partition/ drive and boot from it like any other System folder.
