Don't plan on running Rhapsody on Nubus based PowerMac hardware anytime
soon. Apple has made it clear that they don't plan on supporting that
hardware. The problem stems in part from the lack of OpenFirmware
support on the NuBus machines.

The Nubus Macs would require ALL new device drivers to support Rhapsody.
Given Apple's currrent condition it's doubtful that they will have the
resources to write the drivers. It's also a question of market
penetration. There are currently more PCI PowerMacs than Nubus machines.

I own a PowerMac 6100. It's just waiting for Rhapsody. Maybe someday.



1. Format/Build Disk a SCSI HD in OS4.2 Intel use it in OS4.2 68K?

Hi all,

This might be a stupid question for a newbie to the black hardware:

Can I use a white Intel box that runs OS4.2 Mach with purely SCSI setup
to format and Build OS4.2 Mach HD for use in a black NeXTStation Turbo

Thank you for your earliest attention.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...

Cheers & Ho Ho Ho,

Tim Chong
