I propose that IDE be mapped into the 6502's address space below the VIAs, with CS0 at $1000-$13FF and CS1 at $1400-$17FF. This uses spare outputs on the address decoder. For a filesystem, why not use regular 1541 DOS 2.6 but add an extra filetype (DIR or so) as an entry in the BAM which points to another 'virtual 1541 disk' on the hard drive. This way each directory is limited to 664 blocks and 144 entries (or whatever the fundamental limits are) but you can have a directory structure of unlimited depth. Does anyone know how filetypes (PRG, USR, SEQ and REL) are implemented? Richard - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
