System 7.5 Network Startup Disk

System 7.5 Network Startup Disk -- Apple's finally done what Macintosh network managers have been doing for years: created a DiskCopy image of a minimal startup disk that boots almost any Macintosh and puts it on a network. This disk will boot System 7.5 on any Mac introduced before Nov-94 that has a high density drive; it includes a Chooser and Network Control Panel and lets the machine connect to a LocalTalk or EtherTalk network. This disk may not do everything under the sun, but in a networked environment it's a good tool to have handy.
