Hallo Nick,

I have no interest at all to modify my software so it will run under
Windows. So I won't have this problem :) The reason behind it: I have enough
486-66's and better laying around doing nothing. This also include some
smaller harddisks < 200 MB. And Windows occupies at least 200 MB.

It cannot and that is a hardware matter. But anyway, a 1541 cannot generate
ATN, so an emulator shoulld not either.

Please, explain this a bit more.

To be honnest, I haven't thought at all about the possibility to change the
devicenumber by software. Must put that on the to-do list.
