I will try it, Roger. I have an EPROM programmer, and it is on my list
of things to do. On the other hand, I'm still working on a solution to
bootstrap HDB-DOS (DriveWire's DOS) using the DLOAD command
(ressuscitated using some black magic on the CoCo 3) instead of burning
it in ROM or loading it from disk or tape. I hope the same thing could
be done with CoCoNet, because it would allow anyone to use your system,
which would certainly help spreading the good news. However, it seems it
won't be possible on the CoCo 3 if the all-RAM mode cannot be used.
Could we use a stripped-down version (or the CoCo 2 version) that would
fit into 8k?
