Well, I think it is something other than that, and I want to use my scsi 
If I boot off of the nitros9.dsk or nitros9.vhd in the sdc I can see the 
floppies, so what is the difference between that
image and the one I made?  Will have to investigate.  I will look for 
the poke info.  Although that doesn't make sense
with what I experienced with what I just said about booting nitros off 
of the sdc above.

Thanks for the thought Allen!
