The only thing missing now are the Coherent installation >disks :-) Heh, this brings up memories of a noisy 40 MiB MiniScribe IDE drive (PATA in more modern language) and a set of 5.25" installation floppies for Coherent on x86. I know, wrong bus and wrong CPU. :) I might still have the floppies somewhere. They were my first exposure to *nix. I switched to Linux in 1993 (TAMU, SLS, Slackware, Debian) and dual-booted with MS-DOS until 1996 or so. On a more serious note, maybe you should try to get a disk image out of a working C900. If that is feasible, it might be simplest to just dump it over a serial line with "od" or "cat". Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2014-10-08 14:00:03
