Hello,

I've got a NeXTStation, I need to re-install NS, but I don't have CD.
I ear that it will be possible to have it trough apple or (I don't remember). Did anybody know more about it ?

Also, I have CDROm player LaCie STOL-HH-CD-CRW4260. It this is ok to re-install NS ?

Do you have a working floppy in the machine too?

that'll save you a BIG hassle.

I used some 24x SCSI cd I pulled from a DELL server, and it worked fine...

I doubt they still have them.. in 1999 it was a big deal, as all the black hardware is sold with NeXTSTEP, and as such is entitled to a copy of 3.3 with fix #3 to make it y2k compliant.

As for getting a CISC CD, you can ask apple, but I wouldn't hold my breath.  Of course you may want to just ask google about nextstep 3.3 cisc iso and see what you get.

yes, google for it and you may find it being shared on a torrent or something.

OK for NS. I don't really like to use torent or other soft like this, but, ok for that.
I find lot of iso "NextSTEP 3.3 CISC (Intel x86+Motorola 68k)".

What about my CDdrive. Did you think it ok for install ?

.
Thank you everybody !!

The cd drive will *probably* be the least of your issues.... burning that disc as raw, not freaking out cause osx/windows/linux won't mount it (by default) and hoping that the m68k boot floppy 'just works'...

Don't worry it shouldn't be *THAT* bad.
