Re: mac potato somewhere?

This is not worth spending any money on. It is just a project for fun.

I have tried installing woody and sarge and can't get either to load right. I get farther with woody. Sarge complains about having read block errors while loading the kernel.

The Ethernet works fine. It is a problem with not finding the right files.

I also have a Quadra 610 that I am going to try on today.

I even have slinks CDs, they might work even better than potato? For 100EUR
I will send you a copy, for 150, you can have both. Seriously, you should
not try to install anything older than woody, we do not support potato or
slink anymore. Usually the installation becomes better with newer releases,
and I had no problem to install woody on my Q840AV.

I didn't read all your emails, too many threads. Maybe your ethernet is not
working? If so, why don't you try a woody or sarge CD/DVD?

PS If you do not have EUR, I'll accept USD too.

You only need macinstall.tar.gz?
