I am currently working on an update of my CS/A65 system - and it will contain two boards that together make up a vc1581 (at least that's the plan). Combining it with a SCSI board and a new ROM that should do the trick with three euroboards. My GeckOS/A65 already implements the necessary software (including FAT16 filesystem), although in (relatively stable) beta, and admittedly yet without vc1581 compatible IEC drivers (which should be easy to do though). I'm also planning an update of GeckOS/A65 to improve file transfer speed but that's for after the hardware update. Andre -- "Feel free" â€“ 10 GB Mailbox, 100 FreeSMS/Monat ...
