S'il a été installé.
(if it was installed)

Attention, d'autant que je m'en souvienne, le mécanisme des rustines
système vérifient le code fabriquant.

Warning: as far as I remember, system patching mechanism checks about
the manufacturer. Not sure Frédéric will be able to install any other
patch. (most recent: 710031 ;-)

Il y a une bonne raison, surtout si la ROM est différente. Cependant,
on peut toujours aller expliquer à la rustine que tu as un Newton

There is a good reason, especially if the ROM is different. However,
one can convince the patch that you have an Apple product.

>In any case, it would display "ROM Version 2.1" if it's a 2.1 device.
Ce texte est dans l'image ROM qu'Apple filait aux clôneurs. Ils ne
peuvent la changer qu'avec un patch.

This string is in the ROM Image Apple provided to cloners. They can
only change that with a system patch. (if you want "Alien OS", or
whatever instead, contact me)

BTW, I re-read the FM recently, and I discovered that AppleTalk
connections are faster than serial. Probably because serial is 38400
(in standard).
The fact is that the DIL does not support faster than 56k connection.
(while Philz extension goes to 110k).
