Thanks Dave, I look into that.
What I want to do, is not easy to explain in e few words...LOL
What I tried to do is, to put an existing OS9.vhd file ( sourced from some archive )
into drive 0 in DW, and then I can do Dir on the FC ( = fpga coco ) that gives me the usual garbled of being a OS9 disk. But "dos" does give me an "ok" prompt. "bootos9" gives "sn error".

So what is the use of vhd files and how do I use those.

This is just playing Dave, please do not loose any sleep over it.
I will hopefully bring my setup along at the cocofest, and then maybe some more experienced person. will set me on the right track.

Hi, Camillus. Check the CoCo3FPGA group file section. Gary has been
constantly updating the documentation and it should be included in one
of the more recent releases.

A quick summary: KEY3 = reset, KEY0 when held down during reset will
bring up the "3 mugateers" easter egg.

SW0 off = normal speed, on = turbo speed.

With DW under NitrOS9 you can create very large drives, probably much
larger than you would ever need to use. What do you want to do?
