Hi Marko,

"closed source" ;) 

Your comment about shutting down computers for file transfer is not correct
for all. 64HDD can be networked into a PC system and can thus real-time
exchange data with W9x and Win2k machines etc. Have a read of the
network.txt file. With this, one can load a file with 64HDD from a machine
across the room/world, whilst someone else is even using the other PC. All
that is needed is the network files from Microsoft and the drive mapped to a
letter on the 64HDD-Box. Some even use 64HDD in a DOS box (though it was
never written with that intension) and thus can file transfer and use the PC
at the same time. Working on a more robust DOS-Box version.....

Hi Nick,

I'm really sorry, I should have remembered it.

I decided to mention it in the same paragraph with VC1541 and 1541emu, as
three projects are very similar.  Section 1.2 now mentions that you can also
make another computer a file server for Commodores.  This would also include
IEEE-488 based file servers; I don't know if any have been completed yet.
