 This would be a great board to connect a 
MFM hard drive to a project computer. It wouldn't take
much to connect to most any computer, even an old S100.
These used a sector buffer so there is no issue with a slow bus.
 Most all the implementations of the WD1001 used that same
instructions. It would be truely easy to get this to work for
most anything.
 I put a different version of a WD1001 on my Olivetti M20.
It was a little easier than most because it already had the software
driver for it but I did have to write my own low level format.
 This board is much easier to use than floppy boards because
it buffers the data and doesn't require faster bus responses.
