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 it." 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? (the other) mike Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2013-05-01 19:01:04
