Links of possible interest

I stumbled across these two web pages of Mac OS 6-9 system software. The items are all compressed with 7z so you might need to be careful where you unzip. I have not checked the integrity of the files inside. I hope that whoever has compiled this understands about resource forks.

Many of these also ended up at WinWorldPC. I recognized one title for 7.1 Quadra 660av disks that I'd DL'd from WWPC and DL'd this one to check. It was the same archive and by the same person who had archived it. Hosed because of the resource fork issue when compressing Disk Copy 6 files that have been imaged using Disk Copy 6 compression (as opposed to without compression), before archiving to 7z, or zip, etc. Those one's you can't even drag into a Mini vMac window to mount.

Not all at that link will be like this tho' I'd guess. It'll just depend on who archived them initially. CD images will likely fair better.

Dreamsupport may be useful for some international flavours of MacOS.
The files are from WinWorldPC as Mike said above - file names are a pain e.g.: "Apple---Mac---OS---7.5.3------German---.7z"
The resulting ISO is intact though. Too bad the not so common languages are missing there too.
