Correct "bless" command for 10.4
Authored by: ratthing on Oct 24, '07 10:09:12AM

Update on the "bless" command for 10.4:

sudo bless -folder /path/to/diskimage/OS9Systemfolder/ -folder9 /path/to/diskimage/OS9Systemfolder/ --bootBlockFile "/usr/share/misc/bootblockdata"
If you used "Classic" as your disk image file as suggested in the original tip, and aren't doing anything wonky with your mount points, your path would be:
/Volumes/Classic/System\ Folder/

Following the remainder of the steps results in the disk image automatically mounting, even though the Preferences Pane complains about the System Folder not being available.

Aside: I guess they decided to add "bootBlockFile" as an option to bless since with Intel Macs, you might also want to bless an image requiring a boot block for another OS like Solaris, or an MBR. I bet that's been in there since before the Intel announcement. Sneaky. :-)
