Configuring Macintosh OS 8.X and 9.X

  1. 1. Configuring Macintosh OS 8.X and 9.X These instructions only apply to systems which meet the minimum requirements as outlined earlier in this booklet or on the ResNet website, which can be found at http:www.uky.eduauxserv (follow the resnet link). If your system does not meet the specifications these instructions may not work and may cause other applications on your computer to fail. Before beginning the steps outlined on the next few pages, your computer must have a Network Interface Card (NIC, Ethernet Adapter, etc.) and its drivers correctly installed on your computer. Failure to do so will result in the inability to correctly configure your computer to access the ResNet network. Should you need help completing any of these tasks including installing your Ethernet adapter, please feel free to consult earlier sections of this book, or call the ResNet office and schedule an appointment to have a ResNet technician assist you. IMPORTANT: You are responsible for restoring your computer’s configuration to meet the needs of your regular network provider. Individuals who proceed with the steps to configure their connection or have a ResNet technician configure it for you assume full responsibility for equipment damage or application damage that may occur. In many situations the Macintosh Operating System CD-ROM will be needed to complete the following configuration steps. Each Student must have his or her original copy of the Macintosh Operat- ing System CD-ROM.
