Yeah, that's one of the pics I'd originally linked to.

I contacted Dave and he's willing to lend out the boards if someone
(preferably local - Steve?) wants to reverse engineer them; he can also take
hi-res pictures of both sides if that helps.

Unfortunately he's never gotten the combo to work:

"NOTE: That I've never gotten the board to actually do anything ... The disk
controller makes "booting motions" but I never got anything to come up on

Sounds like he probably doesn't have the CRS/PDOS PEDISK disks, and aside
from some notes the only docs he has is the ZRAM manual which I think you
(mike) also have.

I wonder what, if anything, Willi managed to find in the meantime?
