Ah, OK.

I did, and to my surprise it didn't help. I'll re-check it today.

I have the C128 PRG but that didn't help much in this case :) I'll
print out the C64 schematics at work today.
  Anyway, I managed to get the C64 and the Oceanics drive up and
running in a PC Tower case, with +5V connected to the user port on the
motherboard. The drive was the tricky part since it was too deep to
fit in the drive bay, so I had to move the controller board below the
drive instead of behind where it usualy sits. The reset switch on the
case is connected to the user port, and the turbo switch should work
well as a ROM switch :) The case also sports one of those cheesy MHz-
displays, but I have no idea of how it works. It consists of three
8-segment LEDs, a MC1413 darlington driver, 15 jumper clusters
arranged like this:

   * * * *
  ******** etc
   * * * *

and no less than four power connectors. Any information on how to get
this thing to display something is welcome.
