NOTE 1:  without PowerTalk
NOTE 2:  without PowerTalk & Quickdraw GX
NOTE 3:  The Sys 7.6 data is for a MAC IIci instead of a IIx.
         7.6 requires 68030 or higher and 32 bit clean ROMS.
NOTE 4:  OS 8 & 8.1 require hacks on System file to work on IIci.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hard Drive system memory can be reduced by deleting unneeded resources.  For example,
the 7.1 Update 3.0 can be reduced from 4.4 MB to 2.8 MB by deleting all but one printer
driver; Palatino, Times, Courier, and Helvetica fonts; and File Sharing.
