I need a copy of the system software disk for my Powerbook 160.  I lost my original disk and now the system folder on my Powerbook is corrupted.  I can only start up with my Norton emergency disk and it reports that the system folder has to be replaced.  Where could I download a system software copy or order a new one?

I checked the Apple site at <<ftp://ftp.info.apple.com/>> but could not find what I needed.  The only lower end Powerbook even mentioned was the PB150.

System 7.0.1 was the last free MacOS. Download all the files for System 7.0.1. One of those files is a Startup Disk.
Here is the exact path:
ftp://ftp.info.apple.com/Apple.Support.Area/Apple.Software.Updates/US/Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_7.0.x/

The only thing that this site did not have was the actual PB160-180 Disk Tools software and enabler 111.  Luckily someone sent me a copy.  Thanks for the help.
