I forgot to add: I first built the 6502 board and did the freerun test.
Then I wrote an eprom with a small test program and checked that it was
running by probing the address lines and confirming that the accesses
was within the boundaries of F8/F9xx.
After I was sure of this, I started trying to get output on video.
