Ken, could you describe how the card connects to the computer (I assume
it fits in a mother board slot) and especially how the drives are

transfer, or does it use memory and prompts for a switch in diskettes?
Do the drives need a power supply? Do I just connect my Coco drive
system to the Catweasel?
