Subject: S-100 revisited
In the never ending saga of bringing up an old S-100 machine, I recived
some usefull information today.
Called Cubix again and got a little more help this time. I learned how to
set the address jumpers for each user processor and wiring for the terminal
Also the fellow told me how to get to the ROM monitor.
I set everything as told, and finally got to the monitor. A little bit
more useful than a dead, blank screen. I still cant get an operation
system to load. I learned (thru three people: Cubix, Helena Valley in
Montana, and firstname.lastname@example.org) that this is a TurboDOS system.
Next step, to bring up an operating system. Still need help with that.
I can only do so much with the ROM monitor.
