My CDR's were bad'ish... too old for the NeXT to read on any of the 
three CD-ROM drives I tried, but luckily my Powermac was able to create 
ISO's of them 6 months ago because re-burned to black CDR's (disks I've 
had luck with even in the oldest CD-ROM drives) they worked fine for 
installing OPENSTEP 4.2 on black hardware.  I finally settled on the 
CD-ROM that actually worked for the install ... an old NEC 1630.  I 
just chucked it in a 411 case in place of the Sun 1X caddy loader and 
away I went... though the jumper switch doesn't work right.  (I just 
hard jumpered the thing at ID 6).

For my Cube I required a boot floppy from NS 3.3.  I just rawrite'ed it 
from Apple's site (the moto image), and then bfd'ed with the CD in the 

I don't think I'll ever bother with NS on PA since 4.2 doesn't run on 
PA.  The other thing is all the software I have only installs for 
Sparc, Intel, or NeXT hardware... no mention of pa-risc anywhere.
