You can desolder a Chip Select or Output Enable signal from the original chip and connect it to +5V or ground, whichever is the inactive level. Then you can piggy-back the JiffyDOS chip on the ROM. But I think that it would be much cleaner to desolder the old ROM chip. It's only 24 or 28 pins: piece of cake! (Guess who upgraded a 128k REU to 512k by desoldering all 16 memory chips (16 pins each)?) Marko - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
