I solved the problem by building/using an IEEE488 interface for the C64 and the VC1541, in addition to my selfbuilt computer who can act as PC floppy drive for the IEEE488 bus (The CS/A65 on my homepage, running OS/A65 1.3) In addition I am in the process of building an IEEE488 interface for the printer port of a PC (original design Ruud Baltissen, but I had to modify it because the load of devices on my bus - CBM8296D, C64, VC1541, SFD1001 and selfbuilt - required different receivers so I decided to go for the 75160/161, before it was just a TTL schmitt trigger. It seems that the I/O ports of the 65** can recognize lower voltages as "1", as I have no problems with directly connected 6521 in the PET and my selbuilt one.) The device driver will be running under Linux and there will be a kind of cbm-nfs server to use the PC filesystem for the IEEE488. But that doesn't help with simple IEC.
