Quote from: "adcurtin"So I found a next cube in a student lab at my school. I'm hoping they'll sell it to me. Anyway, I had a couple questions about it:1. are all cubes B&W?2. would it be possible to make the cube work with a standard monitor (is it pin compatible)?3. I am pretty sure the cube didn't have an rj-45 port, so does that mean its a 68030?4. When I turned it on, it failed to boot. It may have a bad hard drive, I don't know. What do I need to reinstall? I have a few external scsi cd rom drives, but if I need a boot floppy, how would I hook that up (the lab does have an old apple external floppy drive that I could use). I already have the cds and floppies.5. Does it use the MO drive as a hard drive, or does it actually have another drive too?6. Is there anywhere I can get MO discs for a reasonable price? It has one that was in the drive, and that's it.7. Is it worth $50? (monitor, keyboard, mouse, cube) even if it doesn't work?Thanks,Andy
Quote from: "adcurtin"Is there anything else I can use instead of a next floppy drive?
Quote from: "adcurtin"So I could copy the whole install CD to a hard disk and install from that (where would I get the drivers from, aren't they only on the floppy)? If that's the case, thats awesome, just like installing Leopard or Snow Leopard without burning a DL DVD.
QuoteWould it be possible to image the floppy disks to zip disks?
