i had wanted to take a stab at accessing the floppy drive using the rom 
driver (under the MRG kernel) having recently found a little time.  however
the MRG kernel on my IIcx doesnt seem to like the Macintosh HiRes Monitor
card.  My "Mac II series" (i.e. Toby) gave up the ghost a few months ago.

The Beta-1 kernel work fine with the Apple Hi Res Card.  The MRG kernel
will boot single user but crash right after i issue a command.  Booting
single user causes it to hang right after it starts checking disks.  It
also gives me the "too many NuBus ranges" 

anyone else see this?
