I recenly got an old-ass Toshiba laptop, and decided it would make a nice desktop machine for running NeXTSTEP. Its an old Satellite T1910 with 4 MB of base ram expanded to 20, a 200.9 MB Hard Disk, and decent video card that either pumps out 640x480 grayscale on the old LCD or 640X480 16 colors to an external screen. The help that i do need is with the HD. So far i ripped it out and it fits into my IDE usb case and i plugged it into my mac mini. I wanted to do the install through paralells, and write the install image to the HD. Maybe thats not possible, but the main problem right now is that OS X wont let me do anything with the disk in DiskUtility. Heres what i get when i try to partition with DiskUtility:
