After I'd done the job, I found out that MacSSH is available at SourceForge.

What initially stunned me is how any vendor who supplied TCP/IP
networking could fail to include ftp and telnet as a standard part of
the package,  I mean, in addition to every version of *nix supplying it,
ftp has been a standard MS offering since MSLANMAN.  But clearly, I'll
never get used to the Apple Way.

I'd mostly run the G3 under OS X 10.4 using XPostFacto, but I don't
believe that the combo supports the old 400K and 800K floppy formats.  I
could have booted the G3 into OS X after I'd done the reading under OS
9.2, but that seemed to be the long way 'round the problem.
