Congrats!

If you have a null modem cable, or can build one yourself... you can make your own boot disk. See:

I would just recommend ordering a disk with ADT PRO from david_schmdt's retrofloppy.com website. Save yourself about five billion repeated attempts to get all that information transfered over for baremetal. Once you've got a physical copy of ADTPRO which can be read by the drives on the Apple II, it's smooth sailing from there.

(Nothing wrong with his software just that many trial & error attempts are to be expected.)

I could also make copies of the system software disks for:
6.01 & 4.0 if you need 'em. They're different versions of GS/OS I've got.

You may go to apple.com look for older downloads they have the Gs
disks available for download and they had hypercard for Gs as well.

I got a system extension for MacOS systems that lets you mount, read and write ProDOS disks if that helps any.

Mac osX? classic already supported prodos, right?

What is it? That would be nice to have.

It came packaged with my apple IIe PDS emulator card.
If you want a copy of it, PM me.

Could you still make a copy of v 6?

If you can possibly make a ZIP and email (reid@techie.com)

I just got a II GS from a school but it had no diskettes:(

Thanks!
