Additional Software Included on this CD:

The "SuperMac Extras" folder contains utilities and applications that bundled and pre-installed with SuperMac, including: Asanté's "NetDoubler", which increases ethernet performance; Micromat's "TechTool Pro", a system diagnostic suite; and Casady & Greene's "Conflict Catcher 3", designed to optimize your system, analyze your extension set and prevent extension conflicts. Some of these are pre-installed on the SuperMac system, others have been provided to install if you wish to do so. You will also find FWB's "Hard Disk Toolkit Personal Edition" and "CD-ROM Toolkit".

Also included is the complete manuals of the Supermac C500 and C600 User Guides, plus user guides for NetDoubler, TechTool Pro, Conflict Catcher, Turbo 128M, PowerFPU, Hard Disk Toolkit and CD-ROM Toolkit (PDFs).

Caveat: Some of the supplied 3rd party software will run only on SuperMac hardware. e.g. TechTools Pro

Architecture: PPC

This CD boots perfectly on other Macintosh computers including Basilisk II emulator. The installer however refuses to install the System Software, as it detects that BII is not a PPC Mac. It's still good to run on SheepShaver.

This is a great addition to the garden, but I'm unable to successfully install the software from this CD onto my UMAX C500. Attempting to run the installer, I get an error that the SuperMac Installer Document can't be found and to verify that I am using the original CD or floppy. I've burned the disk from two different Macs using Toast 5 under OS 9.2.2. Anyone else have this issue?
