OS9 Level 1 Ver 2
I was loosing sleep. I could not make a bootable disk using OS9Gen or
Cobbler. I could only DECB backup the factory 35TSS disk.
1st made the equivalent of level 2 REL. The lev.1 version isn't a 87CD
type module while lev.2 is.
2nd was making a handfull of bytes I found between modules OS9 and OS9p2
This was quite a surprise.
These are bytes are 01 D2 01 77 01 7D 01 83 01 84 01 88 01 83
Merge a new boottrack.
OS9Gen -t and all that.
And BINGO! Boots every time.
What those bytes do or why they are there is at the moment beyond me.
