Really funny: maybe this is Yet Another Commodore Strangeness that could be reported in the "secret weapons" site, along with some late A3000 with an internal 1M76/HD "DF0:" disk drive, like the A4000! :-) > > Something strange is puzzling me, anyway: why are there on the list two > > ROM chips for the 2.04?

What's a CDTV-II? > Newer Kickstarts can be installed into the A1000 with some hacks. Yes; but it isn't an "official" issue. I just meant that the A1000 has 256K RAM reserved to load Kickstart, so nobody can KickStart the A1000 from "DF0:" with anything higher than 1.3. Anyway, don't worry: it's me who's kinda naive, thinking that someone around there might still bootkicking the A1000... ;-) yo, RDO - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
