Architecture: macppc
Machine: macppc
>Description:
	Various macppc documents mention System Disk Utility download from Apple as
	ftp://ftp.apple.com/developer/macosxserver/utilities/SystemDisk2.3.1.smi.bin
	but recently? Apple pruned the FTP site.

	The current valid URL will be

	http://download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-North_American/Macintosh/System/Mac_OS_X/System_Disk_Utility.smi.bin

	which is the newer System Disk Utility, version 2.6.2.
	Submitter confirmed that it did run on PowerMac 8500/MacOS 9.1 .

	(Apple could discontinue the site any time; how should we prepare for that?)

>How-To-Repeat:
	wget ftp://ftp.apple.com/developer/macosxserver/utilities/SystemDisk2.3.1.smi.bin
>Fix:
	wget http://download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-North_American/Macintosh/System/Mac_OS_X/System_Disk_Utility.smi.bin

	Various documents, such as Install.{ps,html,txt},
	http://www.netbsd.org/ports/macppc/SystemDisk-tutorial/index.html ,
	http://www.netbsd.org/ports/macppc/SystemDisk-tutorial/of105patch.html 
	should be updated to point to the new URL.
