You would want to use this method for versions prior to 7.2.  For
7.2 on, try this.  (yes, I know it says 7.3.1, but the non-Apple drive
hack works for 7.2.  I haven't tried the multiple partition hack.)

to have it operate with non-Apple hard disk:

1/ To format a non-Apple Hard disk:
Open the resource CODE ID=6 of "Apple HD SC Setup 7.3.1"
At address @0060 change 222F 000C to 4E71 7203

2/ To create multiple (MacOS) partition
Open the resource map ID=257 of "Apple HD SC Setup 7.3.1"
At address @0025 change 00 to 01
Then use "Custom partition, ignore the warning message and
reboot: you will be prompter to give a name to the 2nd partition.
