Whoever can help this individual, please keep me in the loop as I am building an MC68000 SBC and I'd like to run OSK on it.  I'm just beginning to build up the PCB, so it will be a little while before it is online.  For all the addressing information needed to adapt OSK, please read the following url.  
< http://oldcpusrus.xepb.org/68k.html>
I also need copies of OSK itself if anyone has a copy as well as documentation specific to OSK that's different from OS-9.  Thanks in advance.
