The manual says you can have the ROM in the FD controller or the KenTon controller, but you have to move the MPI slot to wherever the ROM is.

I used it like that for many years. But after many years in storage, the MPI, floppy or KenTon could be having issues. NitrOS-9 definitely has issues (or so it seems) with the LR/KT SCSI drivers. They tend to lock up often on me, while RGB-DOS seems content to format 256 HD “drives” with no issues.
