2) Resedit

3) The BeOS

4) A 2 MB hard disk partition
Now, do the following:

1. If you have a MacOS CD, get the Disk Tools image. If you have an actual

2. Create and initialize your 2 MB partition.

3. Copy the System Folder from either the Disk Image or the floppy

4. Copy the BeOS Launcher into System Folder:Startup Items on your

5. Open the System file using ResEdit and remove the first ‚ALRT‘
