Hi there,

does someone have such a PC-Card in his Macintosh?
What PC-Card do you have and in what Mac is it installed?
What PC-Software/OS do you have installed?

Thx
Doc

Always wanted a DOS/PC card for Macintosh, most I can find are for the PDS's, any of which I do not own.

I do some and I do use them, but I am interested what other people have and what they do with them.

I got a "DOS Compatible" Performa 630.

Really fun, very useable with it's 486 @66 and SoundBlaster Vibra module.

Running DOS 6.22 and Win 3.11.

Mac is running System 8.1 (would prefer 7.5.5 but it didn't like the DOS card on that OS).

I also had this one, but the power supply died.

I have quite a few.

A Performa 630 DOS Compatible, a Power Macintosh 6100/66 DOS Compatible, and a boxed PCI "PC Compatibility Card"

You need the "PC Setup" system extension+control panel to make the DOS card work in any of them. Version 1.x were the original releases of the software by Apple. Version 2.0 was spun off to a separate company to sell, and had quite a few improvements. The seller of 2.0 made Version 2.1.7 free when shutting down - you can find perfectly legal copies of 2.1.7 online, including the serial number registered to "free". You need version 2.x to run a DOS card on Mac OS 8 or later. (Although there are no drivers for Mac OS X.)

MacOS 8 needs PC-Setup 2.x ? Are you sure about that?
I use MacOS 8 on 6100/66 and PC-Setup 1.64.
