    Running Scsi cdrom on LCII


    I have a old LCII laying around, and today i started to mess around with it and I wanted to upgrade it to os 7.5.3 but i have to make 18 floppys to install it and i dont have another mac just pc's so i tried making a few of the floppys follow instructions sites gave me, and I have had no luck so i was thinking when i opened it up earlier today i saw it had a scsi hard drive so i was thinking if i could get a scsi cdrom and get a scsi cable that has master and slave on it and use the cdrom to boot and install things. Can anyone tell me if this would work or not.

    Your Mac's Specs
    Mac Pro Quad Xeon 2.66GHz 3GB RAM, G4 Quicksilver w/Sonnet 1GHz Encore ST, 1ghz G4 Powerbook
    Yes, it will work. I had that setup on a Quadra 605.

    The SCSI isn't recognized by master and slave. Each device is given an ID from 0 to 7. Your internal scsi drive will already be set to 0. Make sure that the external scsi device is not set to 0 and that it is terminated.
    I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know who holds tomorrow.
