As for not starting up properly, I had an 8K PET once that needed additional support under the middle of the motherboard (previous owner made a long "V" out of cardboard) to prevent board sag which was inducing intermittent socket failure in the SRAMs. Essentially, unless the middle of the board was propped up, zero page was flaky. Might or might not be your problem, but it's something to consider. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
