I've heard about "IDA", is it commercial or freeware (I suspect the former)?
Can't remember what I was using, I'd have to dig out the hard drives all
that stuff is archived on (that particular machine expired and after
checking the drives were OK I put them aside to deal with later....).
Whatever the disassembler I was using, it was extremely configurable, but it
was still a *lot* more work than I'd envisioned as it was a totally unknown
system to me. In contrast, at around the same time I also disassembled the
Atari 5200 and 7800 "BIOS" ROMs, this was a breeze as the 5200 is
essentially a 400/800 with a different memory map and I used to program for
I did post them on my website at the time....another thing I should pull of
those drives and put back online!

Thanks for the info, seems I'd missed more of the developments in the IDE
world than I'd thought. :-)
