In my book, that's 64KB. :) So I guess looking at the > motherboard, that means I've got 96kb! :) So it seems you have a 8096 instead of a 8032. This model uses an extension board to expand the RAM to 96, with a special banking scheme. For this see the PET index at http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/~fachat/8bit/petindex/petindex.html But if it has, in addition to the RAM, a 6809 CPU and a 6551 ACIA you have a SuperPET instead. Andre P.S.: Ahm, if you are able and willing to reverse-engineer the schematics to this board... Ok, probably asking too much. It's just one of the very few schematics missing on ftp.funet.fi/pub/cbm. -- Email address may be invalid.
