Nice idea, I'll try that too.
So flash cards are much better the fd0, but still not
as reliable as IDE ?
I couldn't buy IDE-to-flash-card-adaptors here, so
I still use fd0 to move stuff between boxes 3m apart.

PS2-mouse, I got the ideas to fix when N-O backup
hangs: just see the 2 modules listed in the Trap-listing
and System.Free <them>. This allows you to continue
without booting and losing days of 'setup'.
Now I've got a similar linux fd0 'false read-only
setting' when the fd0 fails once, which also can't
[with my present knowledge] be fixed without rebooting
and losing days of 'setup'.
I use the one box with linux-oberon for inet fetching
and I prefer the other 2001:N-O box for processing
== Chris Glur.
