Re: S-100 68K CPU board status
Hi John! The Wilcox book describes how he got CP/M-68K running on his
S-100 68K CPU board with a Disk1A floppy controller.
Basically it was a similar approach. He used TUTOR 1.3 to load a
bootstrap loader which in turn loaded a CP/M-68K binary image into RAM
Please see chapter 14.3 for his approach. Thanks and have a nice day!
