there is NO such file inside Apple's server. I can confirm this.

I have all the other discs though.

This does not seem to link to a working source, even with an Apple Service Source login id.

The description of this CD also appears inconsistent with Apple's own documentation. The original post seems to be describing the Apple Legacy Software Recovery CD (CD 4) which has already been posted here. http://www.macintoshgarden.org/apps/apple-legacy-software-recovery-cd

Here's the relevant part of the "readme" file from this four volume set:

@sheepmyshaver123: Then I probably have it.

I've been seriously busy lately but that should improve and you'll probably see me around more too.
