It may be...

You could try the NetBSD/Mac68K installation utilities. The installer
*will* let you cpio to/from a BSD partition. I don't know if it will work
though without trying it my self (but it is likely to...)

1. Read Macintosh format cdrom from SunOS cdrom drive?

I hope this is the right group to ask this question.  I have an Apple
Macintosh cdrom that I would like to read from my Sparc (SunOS 4.12).
I mounted the cdrom as usual using "mount -r -t hsfs /dev/sr0 /cdrom"
assuming High Sierra format and it worked.  But doing "ls -a /cdrom" did not
list anything.  I think the format is HFS instead of HSFS.  I tried -t hfs
and mount returned an error. Is there any way to read such a cdrom from
a Sparc possibly using some driver?
