The only caution I would add relates to my restore. System: PowerBook G3,
bronze keyboard, MacOS 9. I did the same steps, booted from a VST expansion
bay hard drive, ran my restore through Retro Client and ended up with a
horribly corrupt PowerBook internal hard drive. I had to reformat the drive,
hook the tape drive directly to the PowerBook, and restore directly. This
did work fine. I don't know if the problem was my network, OS 9, or
PowerBook related, and with 10 gig of data at risk, I didn't experiment.
