Hello NeXT Community: Turns your NeXT Into a MAC running System 7.5

The goal of this isto make an easy to understand set of instructions on how to install DayDream or DarkMatter on your NeXT Computer.

At this point in time I'm overcoming the learning curve but I'm close!

Instructions for how to install DayDream for Daydream you need a special
dongle that contains Apple roms that plugs into the little used DSP port on the back of the NeXT,

If you don't have an uber rare DayDream Apple rom Dongle luckily for you , NeXT programming gurus including the original author have in effect preformed miracles and upgraded the good old DayDream software kernel to now bypass the need for a DayDream Apple dongle rom box by injecting the apple rom software code directly into the kernel boot process, boom DarkMatter and our NeXT's now lead a dual life as reborn old school Macintosh
.
Here is the DayDream and Darkmatter software you need :

I'll complete the instructions once I have it working and with the help of others that all ready have it working!
Cool
