NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP for Mach Release 4.x for Intel Processors
Revised November 14, 1997
____________________________________________________________________

This document describes in general terms the types of PC-compatible hardware that is supported by OPENSTEP for Mach Release 4.x for Intel Processors.

This guide is divided into six sections:

....General System Requirements
....Display Options
....Networking Options
....SCSI Options
....Sound Options
....System Options

In addition to this guide,  please refer to NeXTanswers, Apple's free information retrieval system. All the drivers in the Guide have corresponding NeXTanswer numbered documents with more detailed information.

NeXTanswers¦:  this guide and many other kinds of information are available from NeXTanswers, Apple's free information-retrieval system. For NeXTanswers documents by fax, call (415) 780-3990 from a touch-tone phone.  By Internet mail, send email to nextanswers@enterprise.apple.com with the two-word subject:  INDEX HELP.  NeXTanswers is also available by World Wide Web at http://enterprise.apple.com/,  FTP at enterprise.apple.com.
	
Driver Overviews:  Driver Overview files, found in NeXTanswers, are documents describing in detail supported features of specific drivers.  They include supported adaptors, supported features of adaptors, and any known problems Apple's Quality Assurance team or Apple Enterprise Technical Support have encountered.  Please refer to these more detailed overviews prior to making purchasing decisions to assure compatibility of your system.

Driver Updates:  Apple and third parties continuously develop and enhance drivers for OPENSTEP for Mach.  New drivers or updates to existing drivers can be downloaded from the Internet via email, ftp, WWW or from our BBS.  NeXTanswers provides an easy method to obtain drivers by email.  As described above, follow the instructions for obtaining a document via return email.  (Note: You must be able to receive NeXTMail or MIME in order to receive a driver through email.)  To obtain drivers by ftp, use ftp to access enterprise.apple.com, log in as 'anonymous' with any password and cd to pub.  In that directory there is a README file that explains how to download drivers and other NeXTanswers information.  The drivers are located under NeXTanswers/Files/NEXTSTEP/Intel_Configuration_Information/Drivers/.  Be sure to also download 1824_Installing_Drivers_Overview.rtf for detailed instructions on how to decompress and install the driver once you have downloaded it. If you have any further questions about how to obtain a Driver Update contact Apple Enterprise Technical Support at 1-800-955-NeXT.
	
For current device support, please request the latest edition of this OPENSTEP for Mach Hardware Compatibility Guide from NeXTanswers or by calling 1-800-TRY-NeXT (or your local Apple representative)

GENERAL SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
____________________________________________________________________

CPU
486, Pentium¬ or Pentium¬ Pro based PC compatible computer. OPENSTEP for Mach requires a floating-point coprocessor.Systems using processors without a built-in floating-point coprocessor require an add-on floating-point coprocessor, or upgrade to a 486, Pentium or Pentium Pro with built-in floating-point support.

EXPANSION BUS
ISA, EISA, VL-Bus or PCI expansion bus.

AVAILABLE HARD DISK SPACE
OPENSTEP for Mach supports multiple partitioned hard disks, allowing the user to install and boot several operating systems from the same local hard disk.  Larger local disks are recommended for stand-alone systems or for systems with a local non-OPENSTEP for Mach partition.

User Environment:120 MB partition minimum, 200 MB recommended for stand-alone systems.

User + Developer: Environments: 330 MB partition minimum, 400 MB recommended.

RAM REQUIREMENTS
RAM requirements vary depending upon your selection of graphics adapter and imaging model.

32-bit color: 24 MB RAM Minimum, 32 MB RAM Recommended
16-bit color: 16 MB RAM Minimum, 24 MB RAM Recommended
8-bit color/grayscale: 12 MB RAM Minimum, 16 MB RAM Recommended
2-bit grayscale: 8 MB RAM Minimum, 12 MB RAM Recommended

GRAPHICS ADAPTERS
See the "Display Options" section in this guide for details on graphics support.

DISK INTERFACES
IDE and several SCSI hard disk interfaces are supported. 

Note: A SCSI adapter and SCSI CDROM, or a supported network adapter and properly configured network installation host are required for installation of OPENSTEP for Mach.
Note: Some EIDE ATAPI CD-ROM drives are now supported for installation of OPENSTEP for Mach.  See NeXTanswer 1933_EIDE_and_ATAPI_CDROM_Support_in_NEXTSTEP_3.3.rtf for details.

POINTING DEVICES
Microsoft¦ and Logitech¦ compatible PS/2¦ and serial mice. Logitech bus mouse.

PRINTERS
Any PostScript printer connected via a serial port, parallel port or network including the NeXT Color Printer (connected via a SCSI port). Apple Computer recommends color PostScript printers with PostScript Level II for proper color support.

NETWORKING
Several Ethernet and Token Ring networking adapters are supported. A networking adapter is optional.

SOUND
OPENSTEP for Mach can support certain PC sound cards for both playback and recording.  A sound card is optional.
