I gave my very old Macintosh Plus to my mother so she could learn how to use the computer.  I failed to give her the system disk and during a move, I apparently lost them.  Subsequently she had a Mac "bomb" system error and presed press the pop-up message's restart button.  Now the computer can't find the system and is requesting the system disk (which we don't have) to restart the computer.  Where can I get one, etc... ?

Tell me what system version you are running.  If I have it I will put it on my web page for you to download.

I'm sure if you go to ftp.apple.com you will be able to find a copy of Sys 6.0.8 or similar.

You've got a really *old* system, there - the "plus" was the third machine Apple ever made - I don't think system 6 will run on it.  

I've still got the disks for my Mac 128K, complete with System 4 (which ran AOK on a 512K, so it ought to run on a Plus) and can post what you need to some public area.

The second part of the problem is going to be formatting a 400K floppy on a "contemporary" drive - no answer for that one, though.

Hi
According to Guru 2.4, anything upto System 7.5.3 will run, but as 4mb is the maximum RAM for your system I'd use System 7.1.
But if you really want System 6 then you can get it from
