Re: ATN trap needed for C128 as well?

Hallo Bil,

First I have to a make an apology: reading it afterwards, my story 
wasn't very clear. And sometimes I ask questions too soon to save 
time. But unclear questions only cost time, not only nine but also 
others :(

Server64 is nothing more then a program to enable a PC to emulate an 
IEC disk using a X1541 cable. As Spiro already mentioned, the freeze 
happens during the autoboot. I'm sure the lines are released during 
the reset but the autoboot causes the program to react to something  
that the C128 does (it is visible on the PC screen) and only then 
the C128 freezes. I'm sure the program runs into something it 
doesn't understand completely and does something to the lines in the 
wrong way. Unplugging the cable solves the problem. After plugging 
it in again, bothe the C128 and the PC act if nothing happened. The 
C128 can send commands and the PC handles them. But in case of the 
PC, not quite as it should. 

It's weekend now and I hope to find some time to have a thoroughly 
look my self. (it's tax time over here and that has priority :( )
