I'd like to thank everybody here on the coco list for helping me out
with my Tandy 1000sx. I was able to get a SCSI and then MFM drives
working on it. I was able to test my moldering pile of MFM drives!
Only one of them refused to spin up. Not bad for a bunch of old
Out of Tradition's sake, I went with a Microtek MFM controller and a
ST-251 drive. Two partitions, a 32Meg and an 8Meg. DOS 3 bites. ;-)
So, two questions:
1) Does anybody know what an ST-251 MLC-1 is? I suspect it's not
MFM. ESDI maybe?
2) Does anybody have a N-1000, 3c501, or other 8-bit ethernet card
they're not using? With AUI or UTP, please. I fear cheapernet! :-)
