What is Mac OS 7, 8 & 9 default hard drive icons?

Basilisk II and SheepShaver default to the 2D Mac OS 7 style hard drive icon even when running OS 8 and 9, so for anyone who wants the standard OS 8.0-8.1 and 8.5-9.0 icons they are packaged in .sit in this download. Just extract with StuffIt Expander 5.5, select one of these icons, choose Get Info from the File menu, click the icon and choose copy from the Edit menu, then select the drive you want to change the icon of, choose Get Info from the file menu, click the icon and choose Paste from the Edit menu.

Note: If you're using this in an emulator such as SheepShaver under Windows, sometimes you cannot get the icons to copy/paste from the "Get Info" window.  This is a bug in the emulator.  To overcome this issue, you can flush your clipboard content by running a small utility that used to come with Windows called "Clipbook Viewer".  Modern Windows don't come with this utilty anymore, but you can download it from the internet OR it is also included in any SheepShaver package from this website.
