It _can_ work with video cards but not sound cards because sound cards, even 8-bit ones, require DMA support which the PC motherboard provides. This ISA implementation only provides I/O space, not ISA memory space, so video cards wouldn't work with it. But... I do agree that it's way cool. I'll have to build one someday. -ethan P.S. - It should be able to work with a serial card set to IRQ3, but a NIC is much more interesting. -- Visit "The Seventh Continent" http://penguincentral.com/penguincentral.html Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
