  1. My gut is telling me this is going to be more trouble than fun! I've been trying to put together a DOS boot disk to get the PC-Ditto emulator up and running -- to no avail. Nothing I've tried so far works. I'll keep at it for awhile longer. I have not tried to do anything with the MagicSac as yet other than see if I could buy some sort of Mac program on the Internet. And yes MagicSac does require the Finder to be on the floppy. I'm going to give this a week or two before I throw in the towel -- then I'll probably look into selling the individual components somehow. Thanks for your responses. GJW
  2. I have set up my 520St after 25 years. Surprised at how much of the system is still in working order. The causualtes are: The mouse doesn't process the clicks. On of my 3.5 drives doesn't work. Years ago I used the system as an emulation tool. I was an embedded systems program consultant. I used the software package PC-Ditto to run emulators that I had on 5.25 floppies that run via MS-DOS. Unfortunately PC-Ditto need as MS-DOS boot disk that I no longer have. It's been years and I could use some pointers on how I go about obtaining an old PC boot disk that will fit on a single sided 3.5 diskette. A similar problem arose when I brought up Magic Sac. I get to the point where the emulator shows the Mac icon smiling at me wanting a Magic Mac diskette with a Mac Program and the Finder on it. I have no idea where those ended up. Is there any where one can purchase, or obtain otherwise, Mac software that old that will work with the Magic Sac 4.2? It's been a kick bringing up some stuff I wrote using Personal Pascal and seeing how dated they seems today, Also a kick going though the massive Tackle Box documentation and thinking never again! I even brought up Minx and remembered the 25 year old username and password. Any help out here is appreciated. Stay warm, GJW
