Leon Sargent, a regular on the Vintage Macs list, came up with this hack, edited and HTMLised by the pickle, for getting Mac OS 8.6 to run on a IIci with the Daystar Turbo 601 accelerator. (Make sure you have a Turbo 601 before doing this; if you don't, you'll just end up with a really confused Mac IIci...)
To be perfectly honest, while I haven't tried it myself, I can't imagine why Mac OS 8.6 is really necessary on a 100MHz 601 that's on a 25MHz system bus (Mac OS 8.1 is probably the optimal OS compromise for that setup in terms of speed and features), but hey, it's one of those "try it because it's there" sort of things. You know, like how JAG put OS X on an SE/30 because he could...
