Small Installation For a small System 6.0.1 that will boot from a single 800k diskette and fit on a ROM-01 or ROM 3 IIgs with at least 1MB of RAM, you can obtain ... GS_Sys601small_SingleDiskForROM1.zip or GS_Sys601small_SingleDiskForROM3.zip from the GS WorldView archive at http://apple2.org.za/gswv/a2zine/Sel/ . For info and download links click on "Getting GS System 6.0.1". (The standard patches to fix HFS.FST and Text Edit bugs are already applied.) Standard Installation You can obtain the set of GS System 6.0.1 disks in convenient Apple II ShrinkIt form from GS WorldView at http://apple2.org.za/gswv/a2zine/Sel/ . For info and download links click on "Getting GS System 6.0.1". This distribution comes with the standard patches to fix HFS.FST and the Text Edit bugs already applied. The set of six diskettes plus Directions and Release Notes is also available in a single .zip file at ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net/pub/apple_II/images/gs/ (file: system601.zip) from Asimov. You can also download the GS System 6.0.1 disks as Mac self-extracting archives from AppleComputer at ... http://www.info.apple.com/support/oldersoftwarelist.html . Each disk in the Sys 6.0.1 folder is a Macintosh self-extracting archive (.sea file) of a Disk Copy 800K ProDOS disk image. According to Apple's directions: "To use, download, double-click the downloaded file (which should decompress it), and use Disk Copy to create a disk Disk Copy can be found in the Utilities folder posted here." A possible hitch is that Mac .sea files must be executed on a Mac to self-extract. (GS-ShrinkIt can create .sea files which self-extract on a IIgs; but, these are not the same as Mac .sea files.) You can download Sys 6.0.1 diskettes as ShrinkIt files from A2 Central at http://www.a2central.com/ (click on "Public File Library"). IIgs emulator users can obtain the System 6.0.1 disks in ready-to-go .2MG form inside a single .zip file from the XGS archive at ... http://www.inwards.com/xgs/archives.html . (Look for GS/OS 6.0.1) For use on a real IIgs, the .2MG disk images can be converted to diskette form via Asimov2. You can purchase the set of diskettes from Garber Street Electronics at http://www.garberstreet.com or from Syndicomm at http://store.syndicomm.com/ . Another way to get System 6.0.1 is to order a Focus hard drive with System 6.0.1 installed.from Alltech at http://www.allelec.com/indexa2.html . --Rubywand ____________________________ 005- Where can I get AmDOS, OzDOS, DOS 3.3 Launcher, ProSel 8, SpeedGS?
