I've set a deal price for the Drive Pak while I'm wrapping up the
CoCoNet ROM. It will include a MicroSD card and you can of course
swap out the cards, but I doubt you'll run out of space. See the
front page of coco3.com for more info.
The Drive Pak with CoCoNet ROM (required) can auto-boot into DOS or
NitrOS-9 automatically, get bitbanger drives as well, and more. Real
drives are supported as usual, and 6551-based drives if you have an
MPI and the CoCoNet server running.
The bottom line is that you can take a bare CoCo 1/2 or 3, insert the
Drive Pak, and boot or auto-boot into the OS-9 system on it, or use
hundreds of floppy disks. I am storing as many cool disks as
possible in the main DOS partition. My pak's AUTOBOOT.BAS program
detects a CoCo 1/2 or 3 and boots into the right NitrOS-9 L1 or L2
automatically, and it's Quick.
