    it had been quite awhile since i was into Mac emulation.

    i got a new pc for the room and thought "Why not make it into a mac clone?" so i download  Basilisk II/JIT for windows, use included tools to copy the rom from my own Macintosh 631CD onto the new pc , and did all the preps , and installed OS8 from my Retail CD

    but i run into this.

    it freezes during Mac OS setup Assistant (the os itself not basilisk)
    i restart the emulator and i'm good till i click a lil too fast and the os freezes
    and restart and it freezes again using it to browse the web which brings me to another weird bug

    i have the driver installed shown in the windows 2000 directions (i'm using xp pro sp2)
    but once i manage to get it to NOT do the freezing bs about half way loading a complex web page it errors about conflicting IP address (the emulated Mac copies what the PC has and doing so windows looses Internet connectivity, and the mac cant browse the web.

    my router is a D-Link DI-524 and i havent understood how to setup Static IP's w/ it let alone get the emulated mac pull its own IP

    this happens in "Basilisk for Windows NT v0.8[build 142]"
    and in "Basilisk for Windows NT v0.8[build 142]" (JIT)
    (well its the versions that show in the GUI info tab but the non JIT vers is v 1.0 according to the changelog and v0.9 for JIT version)
    heres my prefs for both Basilisk II and Basilisk II/JIT

    This is my Prefs (Basilisk II/JIT)

      Try running disk first aid from another bootable image (I also used a Performa 631 ROM, but in Mac OS X version).  Try setting RAM size of emulator to a normal multiple (16, 32, 48, 56, 64, etc). Also try 8.1 update if you do have that yet (free from Apple). It corrected numerous bugs. I am not sure if this will help with internet connection sharing with emulator.

      Good luck!
