Ours is a two Mac family that has yet to make the move to PPC or OS 8 (okay, we're backward). I'm currently running OS 7.6.1 on our "main" machine, and would like to do the same with "ole Betsy," an eight-year old SE with 4MB of RAM, twin FDHD's and an internal 40MB SCSI hard drive. Problem: I don't have a CD-ROM drive for the SE and the OS software is on CD.
Would it be possible to create a compatible 7.6 system file on our newer machine and then install it on the SE? If so, how would I go about it? Please be specific since, while I consider myself computer literate, I only "read at an eighth grade level."
