Pre-installed set added (2nd DL above) for those with floppy media issues.

This is probably obvious, but trying to install this on a 1999 iMac with OS 8.6 (and the images mounted via toast), it freezes the system and asks for the next disc. I've tried having all three images mounted (no good), and copying the contents of each disk to a single folder on the HDD - also no good.

Any ideas?

I have it running flawlessly on SheepShaver (with OS 9.0.4), but for some reason, my PowerBook G3 with OS 9.2.2 doesn't like the images or even the folder from SheepShaver.

Currently, I have tried to image the disks physically on Windows (only machine besides said PowerBook with a floppy), the images write in WinImage, but Disk Copy 6.3.3 doesn't like it, and the installer on Disk 1 eventually gives up with the error: "Unable to read from archive. (I/0 error).

Anyone have any ideas on how to re-install this on 9.2.2?

Still am getting the NoSuchKey error that others have described. It would be nice to have the v2 stuff to go with my LCII setup. Again, if anyone happens to have Kid Pix 2 available, please upload it! Smile

I too have a copy of the original Kid Pix (public version), if anyone needs it uploaded, please let me know.
