Just FYI...

The reason I put up this page on my site was because that page has all broken links.

The links should have been fixed to point at items within this directory at Apple, but Apple doesn't maintain any of their older tech info pages anymore.

I haven't had a chance to this Mac-based solution yet - owing to hardware hurdles thrown up by my slab -, but I know that its Overwrite sectors command can be used in creating boot floppies from images for PCs in need of a little linux.

Edit/Followup: "this" (suntar) does seem to work. Unfortunately, testing consisted entirely of attempting to boot VPC 2 to the NS3.3 non-Moto (:?: :!: ) boot floppy image, written by suntar. Having none of the other floppies prepared, and being required to insert the core drivers disk to continue, I had to abort. Promising, though; I may yet be running NS - albeit, possibly on a Mac before a slab I have in hand.
