The Fireball series need initiator identification. That's why you can't 
boot because the TOS doesn't support this. With a modern harddisk driver 
that support initiator identification you can use these disk.

There is also a patch for the TOS available. Simply change some 
bytes, burn a new ROM for the TT and you can boot.

Ligthning are very fast and work very well. Trailblazer work also but is 
very slow.
