I finally got another pc532 over the weekend (and a SPARE UNSOLDERED
BOARD still in it's clear sealed plastic wrap!!) to replace my dead
My first attempts to download a 1.5 floppy/kernel weren't successful
unfortunately. I tried:
% tip console
NS32000 ROM Debugger
Version: Sat Jan 18 18:58:15 1992
RAM free above 0x129c
Command (? for help): download 0x260000
type "~$./download floppy-144.fs"
~$Local command? ./download floppy-144.fs
away for 25 minutes 44 seconds
and at this stage got no response. It's been about *seven* years since
I've used a '532 - anyone able to help refresh my memory on what I
should be doing?
I'm also wondering from Jon's message if that kernel will be very
useful, in terms of having a working bim on it.
