Hi just to confirm that a floppy drive is not needed to build NOS-9
boot using the superIDE
I managed to do it using only DW. I'm going to write a how-to or
something, because this is a good info.
also I included v1 and v2 in the boot and it works. shell i=/v1& CLEAR
is enough now to play the games
