If this MacOS installation has a TCP stack, then the problem may be the 
network interface. It will disappear in the absence of a working AAUI 
(ethernet transceiver).

If MacOS has TCP control panels but they complain, then the network stack 
may have been disabled in Extension Manager.

If no TCP stack is installed, you will need to use more disks or else use 
the serial port (e.g. zmodem or localtalk) to get the OpenTransport 
installer onto the target machine.

For that, I usually use a cross-compiled, non-modular kernel. I can build 
one for you easily enough but I can't test it.

I can't help with a bootable System 7 installer CD. Mine is in storage and 
I won't be able to access it until I'm next in Melbourne. Perhaps someone 
else on this list can rip an image of one; it's easy enough (can use dd on 
either Linux or OS X).
