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

I'm also planning an update of GeckOS/A65 to improve file transfer speed
but that's for after the hardware update.
