"First off, it looked nice--it appeared I could set up my hard
drive from the MacOS. I followed the easy to read manual's

A/UX Swap, and one small 30 MB slice to contain the boot
"After about 3 hours I got it to partially run on my Beige Box
G3. It was nice except that I didn't have root access because after
10+ installs; I still got an error message about not being able to
set the root password. This was a major hang-up, and this was not
the only install error. During install I got about five more vague
messages during each install attempt. The thing I was surprised to
see was full support of my MacAlly USB card. Then again, it uses
standard Apple drivers, so maybe that isn't so amazing."
