Yes that's correct. I'm HofMar from the Forum-64.

Are you sure? The most sources write only dos 1 (without the dot zero) not
DOS 1.0. At
andre write about the first useable dos is DOS 1.2. So is think 901466-02
must be DOS 1.2. But what's about the 901466-01 and DOS 1.0?

We talk about the FDC rom. You can change the dos for some modification
without changing the FDC rom. It's only 1kB! Okay, if there is an error it
must be corrected. But was there errors in the fdc from dos 1?

That's a goog question. I remember that some commands are missing. But if i
look at the disassembly (see above) all you need is into dos 1. If a have
time, i try it with the vice emulator.

That's a good idea.

Yes, i've posted last night, i want to try with a shift of the addess lines.
And so Phi2 can be connected to A0. With this clock signal i hope to readout
the 6530.

At this time, i only have the chip 6530. I found it near some other
commodore chips. So i don't have a working 4040 (or 2040) with dos 1 roms.
