If you want additional help, you are going to have to report an exact 
description of what you are doing. Generalizations mean nothing when it 
comes to troubleshooting. Posting, "It doesn't work!" or "I can't make 
it work." will get you nowhere.

So, post the contents of your mb and bootlist files. Which version of 
NitrOS-9 are you working with? Is this on an emulator or real Coco 
system? Specify in detail the hardware or emulator being used. What 
disks are in which drives and what are the drive specs?

You have implied you are using a Disto SCII but have not really said you 
are. So, do you have this controller or are you just trying to use the 
drivers with a normal controller? If you have the controller, what are 
the jumper settings, ie. is $FF58 or $FF74 I/O in use?
