Here's an update on where I'm at.

I tried copying the install floppy to SCSI ID 2 and NeXTStep 3.3 iso to SCSI ID 3 with the following commands. Disk6s1 is the SD card. Per the previous input I used the seek command to write to the appropriate start sector for each SCSI "device" as the scsi2sd-util lists.

Code:


sudo dd if=/3.3_Moto_Boot_Disk.img of=/dev/disk6s1 conv=notrunc seek=8388608 bs=512

sudo dd if=/nextstep.iso of=/dev/disk6s1 conv=notrunc seek=8391488 bs=512



Both commands appear to write date to the SD card as the read/write LED on my SD card reader flickers during the process. When I connected the SCSI2SD back up to the cube and boot to install floppy, nothing came up.

I checked the SD card, and it appeared that no files were written to it.

Confused


You need to use the full disk, not the partition slice, so you'd need to use /dev/disk6 (or /dev/rdisk6 .. it's unbuffered and writes faster)

I have to try this as well! They also released a new version of the firmware 6.2.1 for version 6 cards at the codesrc site.
