With modern components, perhaps one way around that would be to use eight 44C256s? Looking at the board in front of me, I don't think it would be tricky to rig them up to the existing board holes. Of course, a couple of large SRAMs could also work, but might require a bit more work to fit in. > There is a 1MB expansion kit for the B series. I have a schematic and some > parts.

I'm not in a hurry for it, but I look forward to seeing it when you have the time. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
