It might be interesting as an exercise, but without Netinfo, as bear has
pointed out, it might be a tough gig.

Older OSX server used Netinfo IIRC, so there might be some joy there, but I
think it diverged enough from *Step to make it moot.

Heck, if it's not having a drive that's stopping you, I'll clone you a 50
pin SCSI drive with NS3.3 and the Y2K patches on it, and you can just plug
it in.

If you could get it to work "natively" with modern hardware/OS, that would
be major (but obscure) geek points :-)
