RE: [N8VEM-S100:607] Re: S-100 68K CPU board status

My first choice would definitely be using the Godbout 68K image and splicing
in a BIOS written in assembly. The Godbout/CompuPro systems we're
outstanding. The documentation was great with great examples. That would be
my first choice. It would be real easy to splice a BIOS into the very simple
monitor I wrote,  see here:-


As to a windows based 68K assembler. I would highly recommend

It is just fantastic for a job like this.

Ha. Okay, so I'm not alone! :)

Yes, I would say almost certainly it should be able to compile the CP/M-68K
sources, as it appears to be the exact compiler used to compile them
