I'm a little late chiming in on this, and my system is an old RGB-DOS - OS-9
setup so this comment might not be fully relevant. I was in the storage
shed on another mission and snagged my OS-9 hard drive recovery kit. I
thought I had a sheet there on the procedure to restore the hard drive, but
it must be a text file on the floppy which I can't ATM access. However one
of the disks is labeled INSTALL - LINK. This brings back the memory that
the order that one backs up, installs and links the OS-9 boot "disk"
