Several questions

Hallo allemaal,

I don't know if I mentioned it here but quite some time ago some 
shelfs in my room colapsed. During the clean up I put some things 
aside that I haven't found yet, like my REUs and CP/M module :( 

But I found my uIED/SD back yesterday :) Regarding the last, I have 
looked for a manual on GO4RETRO but didn't find one. If I understand 
correctly, Jim only produces the hardware. My question: where can I 
find one ? And otherwise: what do the three buttons?

I also ordered a ZoomFloppy that I hope to receive soon. The ZF is 
to read/write IEEE drives. My question: has anyone thought about it 
using the ZF in the other way i.e. a PC + ZF as drive?

I lately bought a CMD drive with a old big IBM SCSI harddrive. It 
biggest disadvantage: it holes are not on the standard place. I have 
a 540 MB and even two 2 GB laying around: smaller, correct holes and 
less powerconsuming. I tried all of then but the only thing the CMD 
shows are the two green activity LEDs continuously. The manual 
doesn't mention anything but just to connect the drive and run a 
program. But I haven't done the last. Any tips/mor pricese 
instructions are welcome! Two more questions:
- what Id should the drive have? (I have no idea what the momental 
drive has)
- can I connect more then one drive to the flatcable? That's what 
I'm used to do im my old RS/6000's. But the manual doesn't say, may 
be wih a reason? (except a second drive doesn't fit in the original 
case :)

I'm building a C128 Tower. It should include a 1571, 1581, the CMD 
and the uIEC/SD. I never ever wondered about it but how 1541 
compatible is the 1571? Or should I add a real 1541 as well for 

There are two ROM versions for the 1581: 318045-01 and 318045-02. 
They only differ a dozen bytes. Does anybody know why?
FYI: JiffyDOS has been based on 01.

Thanks for any help, info, etc. !!!
