	Various macppc documents mention System Disk Utility download from Apple as
	but recently? Apple pruned the FTP site.

	The current valid URL will be

	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?)


	Various documents, such as Install.{ps,html,txt}, , 
	should be updated to point to the new URL.
