Greetings.  Shame about OpenStep.de.

I am a longtime NeXT fan and user and am trying to install NEXTSTEP on a modern PC.  I realize video will run in minimal mode and that it may not work at all.  Just attempting here.

I purchased NEXTSTEP for Intel v3.2 back in 1994 (academic) and also have NEXTSTEP v3.3 and OpenStep v4.2 which I for from Apple when I submitted the serial # of my NeXT Station Turbo Color to them.  

[ ...you can't see it due to same color links/text (what's that about?) but each word of the above "my NeXT Station Turbo Color" is a photo link... ]

Do they all required boot floppies?  I know NS 3.2 came w/ a boot floppy but I can't recall if NS 3.3 and OS 4.2 did - I can't find the floppies if they came with the pack, but do have all CDs.  

This has IDE CD-ROM, no SCSI.  Does anyone know of various floppy image formats in which the boot floppies can be found?

Thanks.

RacerX has all of the floppy images online as well as full instructions on creating boot floppies.  You can find them here.

Hope this helps.
