And when will ImageDisk support additional FDCs (even at different IRQs
and DMAs)? Without that support, I can't use it for my 8" and 5,25" 48tpi
DD drive. I have a total of 4 FDDs on my machine (and perhaps more to
come), and two FDCs (primary and secondary for now).
And why doesn't ImageDisk support 4 FDDs on a single FDC? I have some
boards that handle four drives with one FDC by providing two 34 pin
headers that each connect to two drives. There are still too many
restrictions to ImageDisk.
But I honour your effort in making a universal disk archiving tool. Hope
it will some day incorporate the above mentioned subjects. On the other
hand, if the source were available...
