Where great old Macs live again!

I have successfully created a System 4.1 boot floppy on an old Powerbook 160 with an external Iomega Zip drive.  This let my copy files from my Linux PC onto the Powerbook for subsequent writing to floppy.

This worked a treat, and I now have a fully booting, boxed 240V Mac 512Ke.

Ah! The joy of success! That sounds like it took some steps to complete. I must go read the write up for future reference. I don't think I have ever use a machine that was earlier than OS 6 point-something. Well, other than having my Apple IIe up and running for about 6 seconds.

Congratulations! And, I love your drawing of the Hello Mac.
