I'm a hardware guy but as long as you call the DSKCON entry points then you 
don't have to have it as part of KAOS. HDB-DOS resides in the address range 
of the cartridge port of $c000 and up, stop point is determined if it is a 
CC3 or CC1/2. $FFDF=$CC3 and $FFEF for a CC1/2. So that places it in a ROM 
pack, like the floppy controller or in the case of SuperIDE it is in the 
FLASH bank that you have programmed. You select 1 of 4 banks via a hardware 
switch or a software register.

Unless I'm missing something???
