Actually I wasn't USING them, just making sure the disk was still good. and when I rebooted with the DISK version of NitrOS9, I saw that it WAS good.

The 249 error occurs with ALL of the nos96809l2v030300coco3_dw.dsk (I re-downloaded it several times) I boot up with using DriveWire. When I boot with my disk-bases NitrOS9, it doesn't happen.

I'm confused!!!
