Quote from: "SVPirate"OK.Using the excellent guide kb7sqi posted, I have achieved network and local netinfo karma.I found the Software Archive (it was late last night )I managed to initialize a second hard drive, in fact it did it automatically. Neat However, I'm still confused about the hard drives. I have 2 installed. The boot messages quote both drives as '455MB', which is way off. 'BuildDisk' also sates the drives are 456MB. The File Viewer says / has 1.35GB free and /Data (the second drive) has 1.48GB free.So... is there a partition size limit? Is there a disk size limit?I kinda gather NeXTSTEP doesn't use parttions when it installs, it does an 'OS X' and installs on one partition.So far So good though. I have a working import from my Mac Pro that pulls in an NFS share so i can move data back and forth.Leopard users might like this:http://macresearch.org/nfs-exports-leopard*Finally* Apple go back to using a proper UNiX config file for NFS exports!Off to look for a tgz unarchiver
Quote from: "kb7sqi"Yeah, TjL's guide makes it easy getting the system on the network. I've kept a copy around for years. Congrats on getting your system running.
Quote from: "kb7sqi"NEXTSTEP has a limit of 2 gigs per partition. If you have OPENSTEP available, I'd install it once you get more ram. :wink: It atleast handles 4 gig partitions. But I'd have fun playing w/ NEXTSTEP first. Take care.
