Did you try the drive with a Vic-20 in a multi-device setup? At http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/firmware/drives/new/1541/ you can read my characterization of the 901229-03 firmware: 'The firmware of an old-style 1541 with long board. This ROM has an autobooting feature: if CLK and DATA are held low during bootup, the drive will wait for them to raise, and execute a "&*" command.' You can also obtain 901229-01 and 901229-02 from that location. I never come across to a 901229-04. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
