.toast are CD images, so it wouldn't be able to write any changes. As the emulator would be running a read only media.
So the repack function should be skipped.
indy4 floppy instead are in .image format and i don't know to mount in emulator..
those are true floppy disk images.

you will need to use a tool like disk write, to make a REAL copy on a disk, for use on a real machine.
It will probably have protection of some sort.

info from the guide...

Remove or disable the Apple Audio extension.
If you running OS 8.5 through 9.0.4, go to the Sound control panel in the Apple Extras folder to enable it.
Remove the Sound Preferences and ControlStrip Preferences from the Preferences folder and restart.
Also make sure you do not have the extensions "Sound Manager" and "Apple Audio Extension" installed. Remove if present.

MESS runs those floppy img files.

it might be possible to convert / install them to a HD file through the emulator settings.

It is available the update 2 (real update 2)
i have added Sheepshaver emu and this is based on basilisk2 script by .mad.
So you have edit your sheepshaver_prefs, GB_prefs and sheepshaver script to your path.
To play Indy4 you have to disable re-zip in front-end option.
