Cool. Will do, thanks.

It looks like I was able to succesfully make all the images *except* for the R4.5 Intel Boot Floppy. Pretty sure I've got a couple of those kicking around; I'll dig around when I'm back over at the storage place tomorrow and see what crops up.

Okay, for some reason I appear to be having problems with the Javascript email address obfuscator on the contact page. Can someone please PM or email me Nathan's address, or have him get in contact with me? Thanks!

Nathan got into contact with me - if you PM me with a desired username and password, I'll create an FTP account for you so that you can upload anything you have.

Apparently the ROM was field-flashable so we should be able to collect the update floppies and not need actual hardware dumping.

Most likely. I'll need time to get some detailed photos so that that can be figured out - both units had to go back into storage so that I could move around in here smile Not to mention that my camera really sucks at doing macro shots, so it's not a simple process on my end. What little I've been able to get so far can be found here; hopefully it'll give a rough idea of what we're dealing with.

Let me dig through my stuff in storage and see what I can come up with. I used to work for Be, so have a decent spread of software left over from when I was there. Any special requests?

Cool, I have a PowerPC based BeBox (133MHz, revision 8) running BeOS R5.

You wouldn't happen to have any datasheet of the AT&T CRISP CPU with the instruction set?

Nice! I've got one of those as well. I wish I'd been able to snag one of the 200MHz machines (there were a very few), but it was a case of saving what you could when all of this was being junked. The quad-proc PPC box would've been nice, too wink

Ooof... I don't know. I still haven't gone through every bit of documentation I have from there, and that's after 8 years. I'll see what I can find, but really have no idea what's in the pile for the most part.
