If you just want a small 6809 SBC with one 6821 and one 6850,
you might take a look at the "blinkenboard" core board.
A similar small board will give you simple 64 TTL outputs and
64 TTL inputs (74LS373/LS374). There is also a design with
a 2793 FDC (working). Check out my website (folder "my projects").
An IDE interface is really simple, you can actually realize that with the
64 I/O board!
Maybe you need some additional hardware to support OS9. I am
not sure if the memory map for OS9 will fit on the 6809 core board.
For example, I have the I/O mapped on $0000 - $007F, and RAM
starts at $2000.
