Hi everyone, this is probably only the second time ive posted a message, so
if I offend anyone (except one certain person. You know who you are Mr T.
hehe) please accept my most humble appologies. Well, here goes the question:
I own a BBC Master, along with 2 other beebs and they have served me well
whilst I have had them. Anyway, I have the chance of getting hold of a 20mb
drive for a BBC, and wondered if it would go on the Master or not. It
already had ADFS, and from what I can gather, you just plug it into the 1mhz
bus and go! Is this true? Do I need any other special software? Also, the
master and one of the beebs (actually a b+128) have econet interfaces. Is
there any way in which these can be used, or is the cable/clocks/software to
do so not available? Could someone give me a quick run down on how econet
works, and what I would need to implement it. I've trauled through several
years worth of Beebug and come up with very little.
Well, there it is, I know it's asking a lot but if anyone can help, I would
I Thank You
