Anyone have an idea of how the PC post test and the Mac post test differ? I would guess that the Mac one would be a little simpler because of all the proprietary hardware. Don't get me wrong Iím no Mac fan just curious.
Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

This is really great stuff! I always wondered about the boot process right down to the 1's and 0's, but even some of my well-seasoned programming teachers did not tell me this Keep em' coming!
cwk9, I have the same question too, but it may go one step futher (And I am gonna go on a search cuz now I am curious): Not just how the MAC boots, but what about RISC or SPARC based machines? I only heard very scketchy details about them, since 99% of all machines are x86 based. Also, does the MAC and Amiga share the same processor architecture, or are they totally different?
Anyway, great stuff
