As this is supposed to work with any of the 4 mentioned OSs (well three
actually, some would say that NT and 95 are at least cousins...)

If the Unix image is not iso9660, then it is either minix, ext, or ext2 if
it is a linux image. There are other file systems on other unices so it
really may depend...

I would try ext2 first, then probably sv4 if bsd supports it.

You are working on a system about which I know almost nothing, so I don't
feel much confidence in my answers. I hope I have been of some little
