    Even with a full set of OS floppies . . . an Imagewriter . . . and the appletalk and ADB cables . . . isn't it still going to be a paperweight?

    Contact your local Apple MUG . . . find the oldest guy there, probably still wearing Birkenstocks, driving a VW Van with the rainbow apple decals and a "Think Different" t-shirt . . . and ask to borrow some diskettes. ;)

    I can't wait to hear how the diskettes get formated and the images transferred. :)

    You might be able to get the job done by attaching a USB floppy drive to your Macbook. OS X should support the floppy format
