I know and appreciate the DIY nature of this, having worked on a few 6502
SBC designs even though there were a few out there already, but maybe take a
look at the P112 (http://frotz.homeunix.org/p112/) for some inspiration.
IIRC, it's the size of a 3.5" floppy drive. I actually built one of the
original versions but I never got down to using it much. I might have to
pull it out and play with it now that I know more about bringing up a CP/M
system than when I did back then.
