I have been fooling with a bunch of OS 9 software off the web (I am downloading everything I can find before it is gone). Now I get a warning that my computer can't sleep because some system software is mising, please reinstall your system! Of course without a working optical drive I've got to figure something out.
I found an old copy of PC MacLAN and can access Mac volumes from the PC but can't seem to read Mac CDs. I was thinking of copying the OS 9.1 install CD to a USB flash card and seeing if somehow I could install from there to the Pismo.
I also found an old copy of Dave for the Mac so I could use the PCs and printers on our network from Big Z Boy, but it is also on a Mac CD, so that won't work either. Any =CHEAP= suggestions?
