Hi everyone,

 

I have to create a boot diskette for an LC475. I have an AGP G4 running OSX X 10.4.11. Can anyone tell me if I can put a USB floppy drive on the G4 and have it work?

 

I need to be able to create a bootable Network Access Diskette so I can get my LC475 running.

Yes. If your G4 can run OS 9, then Disk Copy in OS 9 will work just fine. If you're in OS X, Disk Utility should work, but I have heard that it doesn't always deal with older disk images properly.

 

As long as the disk image and disk are high density, you're fine. (USB floppy drives can't read or write 800k or 400k Mac disks.)
