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.
