Hi, I'm trying to get Rhapsody DR2 installed on a Dell Poweredge 1400 just for kicks. However the server uses a Adaptec 78xxx series SCSI adapter which Rhapsody does not support "out of the box". However I have found a driver which from what I've read seems like could work here: http://www.nextcomputers.org/NeXTfiles/Software/OPENSTEP/Drivers/Beta/Adaptec78XX.pkg.compressed (stable: http://www.nextcomputers.org/NeXTfiles/Software/OPENSTEP/Drivers/Third_Party/scsi/Adaptec78XXSCSI-4.013.tar.gz) however putting it on a floppy formatted FAT16 or HFS (not +) does not seem to work as the Rhapsody DR2 installer simply complains that it can't read the disk. I've also tried using the openstep 4.2 beta drivers listed here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TA45687?viewlocale=en_US (read that openstep drivers will work in rhapsody--used dd, worked fine for official rhapsody boot and drivers disks) but the installer didn't like that either. What am I missing here? I have noticed that Mac OS X leopard will not boot the official rhapsody floppy images or the floppies themselves implying that it's not using HFS/HFS+/Apple UFS, does Rhapsody use its own proprietary filesystem? If so, is there any hope of being able to format disks with that format under Mac OS X Leopard or will I just have to try a solution compatible with the "out of box" drivers?
