@SkyCapt: Are you aware of Virtual DVD-ROM/CD Utility? It's a tiny program that instantly mounts both the Mac and PC partitions of almost any ISO, DSK, or Toast image, without needing to set their type or creator. Much more convenient than Toast or Disk Copy.

@damage I too found ways to mount only the PC junk. After unzipping, we get an ".ISO" file. ISO Mac-half can mount using OSX (of course) but if you want to mount in OS9, simply use Disk Copy v6.5b13 (not 6.3.3) in OS9, and use a utility like "FileType" to set the ISO file's Creator Code to "ddsk" and the Type Code to "devr" then it mounts the Mac partition. Setting the ISO Type Code to "dimg" mounts the PC partition instead, assuming you ejected the opposing partition first. Another ISO acting this same way is the SimpsonsVirtualSpringfield, I find I don't need "Toast".

Hello, I just downloaded this file and unzipped it. Then opened with toast, looks like only the PC files show on the CD image. Could someone confirm this? Is this supposed to be a Hybrid?
