Re: [N8VEM-S100:300] Re: Disk Images

Sounds like you're doing very well. I've actually gotten a couple of the S-100 boards from Andrew and John, and just received a 9-slot S-100 backplane. I haven't done anything with the N8VEM project but I'm getting one of the beta N8 (home computer) boards. I've been trying to locate an affordable 8" drive in order use something similar to what you're planning do, but I'm too far behind you to be of much help, I think. Sounds like you're basically ready to go. If I do happen across any resources, though, I'll give a shout. Knowing what your system is might click in my mind in other forums, etc. I definitely agree that mirroring someone else's initial setup would save a lot of hassle.

Hi Brian,
I have just finished assembling an "N8VEM S-100" system. I have a Z80
board, a ZFDC board, a 4M SRAM board, a System Monitor board, a PIC/
RTC board and a Propeller Con I/O Board.
I have been able to write the CPMLDR  to my 8” FDD using a  Z80ICE to
load hex files into memory. Next I was going to try using the Altair
Simulator with the Image Disk extensions to make a N8VEM S-100 virtual
system disk and then write that to a physical 8” disk using ImageDisk.
But I was hoping someone already had a system up and running that they
could share here.
