I've lost the hard disk startup already, boot from floppy works fine, although with that I can't experiment with adding the networking extension to get it online. This is turning into a much bigger project than anticipated. Apparently it's common for people to need two working Classics so they can do disk work on one for the other. The SCSI HD looks to have been specially formatted in an external caddy, which means the Apple repair tools can't see it (I can browse it fine though though).


I've read you can get an old external Zip drive and use that as a startup disk which should make life easier, but that's more time and expense, and again those old Zip drives will still be pretty painful to work with.
