If the NeXT box is running, hook up an external SCSI disk and use the
BuildDisk app to make a fresh, bootable disk out of it. You have the choice
to include or exclude the apps on the disk, too.

It doesn't migrate user accounts, etc. It just give you a "fresh install"
hard drive you can go and plug into another NeXT.

I've taken some 50 pin drives and made a fresh NS3.3 and OpenSTEP 4.2 hard
drives "just in case" I need to replace a current drive, or get more black
