I'm trying to put together a DOS system on which
to run the ImageDisk
software, as found here:
Here is a thread on my site about my Pentium III system dedicated to imaging
disks, plus a link to the class notes from the talk at the VCF East last
I am using a generic Pentium III, which will handle the Adaptec card you
have in place of the Catweasel I have.The drive controller of the Pentium
III has no issues with a 5 1/4" HD drive, which with an adapter can mimic a
77 track 8" drive. Note that I have a dual boot system, Dos 6 and Windows
2000. Works perfectly. Very little I can't image with this that is
image-able. I also intend to put in a Quad Density drive, but I have not
gotten around to it yet. The quad density I believe will look to the
Pentium Bios as a 720 3.5" drive.
In short, make your life easy, use a Pentium III with a compatible BIOS.
