Quote from: "neozeed"Remember Steve hated/hates floppies. NeXTSTEP 0.9-2 shipped on the magnetic optical disks. Starting with 3 it was on CD.All the floppy has is a program that'll read the CD from the bios. The CD is a FFS filesystem (is that redundant?).Now somewhere around here, somebody just DD'd a copy of the CD onto a hard disk, slapped that in a cube, and it booted.The other thing you could try is to netboot from an i386....... i'm completly unsure if that'll work. But logicall it ought to. You'll just need an emulator that doesn't NAT.
Quote from: "pergamon"The uncommon NS2.2 (and maybe 2.1 and 2.0) was available on floppies, because it could run on the stations which didn't have ODs, but before the first CD-distributed version (3.0).
