Two things - one is that I should have said the SWTPc 6809 not 6800.  2nd I
have had SWTPc machines with MSI cards in it, but I no longer have the
system.  I sold it because I just wanted the one 6800.  Space reasons.
There were ROM cards for this class of machines.  Companies like Micro
Works made them.  One way or the other I think you can find a ROM, if
you're FLEX-able.  get it?
