  1. I have a fully recapped SE/30 with 128MB RAM, ROMinator II Mega (with stock software still on it), and I'm booting from a FloppyEMU in HD20 mode. Even though FloppyEMU is basically a floppy emulator that connects to Macs via the floppy port, "HD20 mode" allows me to create a disk image (in my case, just over 200MB) on the SD card of the FloppyEMU and boot from it, just as an Apple HD20 hard disk would boot (via the floppy port). Normally the SE/30 cannot boot from an HD20, but the ROMinator II fixes that problem and allows booting from the FloppyEMU in HD20 mode and even from a real HD20. Currently, I am using System 6.0.8 on my FloppyEMU. Everything works fine and as expected EXCEPT for MultiFinder. For some reason I don't understand, MultiFinder won't load when I boot System 6 from my FloppyEMU in HD20 mode. (You always know when MultiFinder loads because you can see a little icon in the upper right of the menubar. When MultiFinder doesn't load, as in my case, that icon is missing.) No matter what I do, I can't get MultiFinder to load when booting from the FloppyEMU in HD20 mode. Yet if I boot from a spinning platter HDD (external SCSI drive) into System 6.0.8, MultiFinder loads just fine. I've tried copying MultiFinder from my HDD to my FloppyEMU without success, and I've tried a fresh copy of MultiFinder from System 6.0.8 install disks too, which doesn't work either. (I am booting in 24-bit addressing mode.) Those of you who have both a ROMinator II and FloppyEMU in HD20 mode booting System 6, have you experienced this problem with MultiFinder?
  2. I've had several PhoneNet adapters in my collection for many years but never used them since my SE/30 has an Ethernet card. But today I was thinking about multiplayer games like MazeWars which might be fun for myself and my two kids. I have a Mac 512k (64k ROMs) and a PhoneNet adapter for it (including terminating resistor), and I also have two Farallon PhoneNet adapters with round connectors for use with more modern Compact Macs like the SE/30 shown here: I am running System 6.0.8 and System 7.1 and 7.5.5 on my two SE/30's, and I have pre-System6 operating systems on floppies for my Mac512 (again, which has the original 64k ROMs, not the newer 128k ROMs of the Mac 512kE or Plus). Since I've never used PhoneNet before, I have the following questions: 1. Can one even play games like MazeWars across different Macs and operating systems? (A Mac 512k is quite different from an SE/30 in terms of floppy disk drive capacity, ROM, RAM and OS compatibility.) 2. What specific software must I have installed on System 6.0.8, System 7.1 and pre-System6 Macs? And, is there a minimum System version for this to work? (Is use of a 400k boot floppy out of the question?) 3. Can I use regular telephone wire? (The kind of wire you'd use to connect a wired phone to a wall socket?) 4. Say I have my Mac512 and both SE/30's all connected via the PhoneNet adapters, and say I have all the required software installed. Now let's say I sit down at the Mac512. I assume I will see both SE/30's in the Chooser? And do I select both SE/30's in the Chooser to start networking with them? 5. Will this LocalTalk setup work with pretty much any multi-player networked Mac game? Thanks. P.S. Yes, I am aware of the Definitive Guide to Networking, but it doesn't answer my questions specifically. Indeed, answers to my questions above may become the new definitive guide since they don't seem to be answered briefly and specifically elsewhere.
  3. I am posting this for anyone who might be interested in a browser for System 6.
  4. Hi, I bought Macintosh Plus (with 2.5Mb of ram) with CMS external SCSI hard drive, i also bought sealed and new system 6.0.8 floppy disks, i installed them on CMS external hard drive; when i open scrapbook or control panel or file manager, co-processor not installed error pops up, it keeps happening every time i open scrapbook or control panel or file manager. Please help me.
  5. OK, so I'm stumped on this one. I've tried to look all over here as well as everywhere Bing and Google would show me and they were not taking me to where I needed to go. I have an Apple EtherTalk NB Card running in my 8MB RAM, 80MB HD, 32KB cache card Macintosh IIci and it wants to connect to the network. It can't get a link. It's running System 6.0.8 with Network Software Installer 1.4.5 installed, and MacTCP 2.0.6. I have to give the Comcast DNS servers rather than making the wireless router the DNS server like Open Transport on Mac OS 8.6 and later. I read that sometimes MacTCP needs different defaults than Open Transport, and so I put the Comcast DNS servers in rather than letting it use my AirPort Base Station as a DNS server the way you can with Open Transport. The current networking hardware setup is a 802.11b AirPort Snow/Dual Ethernet UFO base station along with a 10/100Base-TX Ethernet switch I occasionally use that both of them features System 6 obfuscating features such as auto-negotiation as regards duplex, auto-sensing as regards whether it's 10baseT or 100Base-TX, full duplex (because all other Macs on my network support operation that is supposedly a toxic trio for a System 6 Mac with a 1989 vintage Ethernet card that just barely supports AppleTalk Phase 2.) What happens when I have it hooked up using the best available connection system is that the IIci properly initializes the card and goes ahead and sets MacTCP to connect via Ethernet, and AppleTalk to connect via EtherTalk the way it says you should do under the article about Classic Mac Networking. If I change the settings software or hardware-wise from what I read should work (and does work as much as possible) for my situation, I get the famous error that "There was an error starting your AppleTalk connection. The built-in LocalTalk port will be used instead." According to years of research, if it doesn't say that message, that means your settings are correct for the network you want to use. But since the network is auto-negotiating, auto-sensing, and full duplex (because all my other devices support those three items), the IIci can't light up the link signal on the transceiver. At least that's what I am theorizing. If the transceiver wasn't compatible with the card, then it would fail to get EtherTalk going according to everything I've read. But yet with those three advanced features on the router end, that combination is what to me seemingly not allowing it to establish a connection. It even works well enough that if you disconnect the Ethernet cord, it knows it's been disconnected and you have to zap the PRAM in order to get the IIci to not display the expected error message until you fiddle with it again (i.e by moving it to a different port, such as a port on the external 4-port 10/100Base-TX switch or on a different router.) If I'm barking up the wrong tree here, then I want to know why it seems to work in all areas except getting a link (and of course, through the link that it wants to have but does not, being able to work with my other computers and the Internet.)
