Hallo Graig,

I would love it too. Whem I started coding, the idea was to attach two
harddisks too the 1541; drive 0 and drive 1. That's when I found out
that the support for two drives was, IMHO, so crippled that it was
beyond repair. Main reason for this argument: the 1541 lacks the RAM
that was reserved for the 2nd drive.

For the moment I'm happy if CI performs the same as changing the floppy.
Support for more drives is possible once we have a stable D64-based FS
to start with. Support of D64 within the big FS I'll leave to others
because it means mixing TS and LBA support; too much work involved.

BTW, I just realised that I don't need to allocate a sector at all for
the CI command: I only need to store a LBA link and every entry has 4
unused bytes: 22..25. Cool :)

> Implement a CD command that would map to changing drive 9

OK, I know that I'm the cause of possible confusing using 'CD' for
changing the image. But in the near future we can use both images and
real subdirectories so to avoid confusion, please use the right

And now you are loosing me ..... :)
