I've recently acquired an Apple IIc. The internal 5.25" drive does seem to make appropriate noises at boot, but I do not (at least not yet) have any floppy disks, with software or otherwise. It's an earlier 16-RAM-chip motherboard that currently has ROM version 255, in case that makes any difference.
Given software (both disk images and individual files) and data files on my Linux system, what currently are my options for getting these on to the IIc and running/reading them, and, if possible, for copying back information generated on the IIc? (I also have a Windows system available, but that's far less convenient for me to use for this purpose.)
Particularly helpful answers will include details about any modifications that need to be made to the IIc (including updated ROMs, if necessary), additional hardware or supplies required by the solution, such as hardware devices, cables, floppy disks, etc., and where to get any software required by the solution.
I'm open to solutions that do and do not need actual floppies for the floppy drive, but of course I'd like to have at least one solution in reserve that doesn't use the current floppy drive in case it's irreparably broken.
One of my applications is to do cross-development from my Linux system (building and doing initial testing of the software on Linux and then copying it to the actual Apple IIc for further testing), so also welcome would be comments on how convenient (or not) this would be with the various solutions you offer.
