Pigs? I kinda like mine.
Leave the BIOS in there, and use uIP stack.
It works on a C64, which is 1MHz, so 4.77 should be a breeze.
I don't know the URL offhand, but Cameron probably does.

Not realy the same thing, but related...
I've considered pulling the BIOS ROMs from an old XT or AT system
(preferably IBM as I have the schematics...) and replacing them with some
kind of TCP/IP stack. Stick an ISA ethernet card in one of the slots (or
a serial card and use SLIP or PPP) and fill up the other slots with
whatever I/O cards would be appropriate to connect to the CP/M box or
whatever. Without the IBM BIOS getting in the way, the 8088 should have
enough power for this, and without the BIOS there'd be no reason to have
a video card or keyboard (or disk drives).
Has anyone ever tried this, or anything like it? I really don't feel like
writing all the code from scratch...
I'm working on writing a program for CP/M 2.2, and would like to make it
stay 'resident' in the system memory. Is there any way I can locate
to bottom of the CCP so I don't overwrite it, without doing it at compile
time? I'm planning on using only Z-80 based systems (so I can use an
offset-based jump) so I should be able to pretty easily make the code
re-locatable. All I need to do is be able to figure out where the CCP is
so I don't overwrite it.
Alternatively, would it be a better idea to write something that loads its
own replacement CCP under it, and overloads the old CCP just under the
BDOS? I would probably need to intercept the 'JMP WBOOT' and 'JMP BDOS'
vectors at address 0 and 5, and keep the old BIOS from overwriting my
resident program. Or, would it be better to just modify and re-compile
the BIOS for each machine I want to run this on (most of the code would
probably remain the same...)?
What I'm looking to do is provide a (small) SLIP or PPP based TCP/IP stack
for a machine that will stay resident and can be used by CP/M 2.2 [or
perhaps MP/M II] user programs.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Can anyone point me to a scanned copy of the manual for a Fujitsu Eagle
drive - an M2351A
In particular I need the drive selection switch settings, the operation the
head lock mechanism, and the meaning of the status codes (on a two digit 7
Dave: check into Eudora, seems to work better =)

I would be extremely interested to learn of your progress in this area.
Please keep us posted, or contact me off-list.
Here is the latest acquisiton of the VCF Archives:
A very neat machine. John Lawson helped me clean it up a bit over the
weekend and we got it to do "stuff" but it's still not printing or
punching so it definitely needs some more TLC.
Look for it to be operational by and on display at VCF 5.0 this September
(dates to be announced very, very soon).
