   A couple that I refer to are Prentice-Hall's MC68020 Users Manual, Second
   Edition", released under the Motorola brandname. Also, "Mastering the 68000
   Microprocessor" Robinson, TAB #1886. 'Course, they're both kinda old.

You might also want _M68000 Programmer's Reference Manual_, and
_MC68040 User's Manual_ both of which I got directly from Motorola.
If I'm not mistaken, _M68000 8/16/32-bit ..._ only deals with MC68000,
MC68008, MC68010, and their CMOS variants and is almost useless if you
want to design an '040 based system or write an operating system for
it.  But it may be of use (a little) if what you want to do is only to
write user programs.
