Long story short: VIC-20 + C2N232 works OK with a 1541 connected. With the 
IEEE cartridge however, it is unable to communicate with the drive on that 
bus and locks up the system. I seem to remember this from before, and 
perhaps it is due to the C2N232 server doesn't recognize the 3rd party IEEE 
cartridge routines?

Unfortunately I don't own any petSD, xs1541 or even a ZoomFloppy. Since my 
IEEE target to backup is a rather non-standard Corvus hard drive, I'm unsure 
which solution would work the best.

I have a few more ideas:

1. Try the PET version of CBM-Command and copy one D64 worth at a time 
(about 36 disk swaps for a full 6 MB)
2. See if I can solder up a PC64 cable and if that protocol works better 
with cbmlink on the 4032
3. Borrow a 8032 from a friend and use C2N232 as I found it to be working 

4. Get some more hardware (see above), I just need to determine which option 
to try

At least no additional hardware seems to have broken down tonight, which 
always is a good thing...

Best regards
