Re: OS9/2 on D64

OS9 Level 2 for the Dragon is on the top of my Dragon wishlist :D
There has been some discussion on the issue of Bringing OS9 Level 2 to CoCo2 and Dragon on the CoCo list a few months ago.

Re: How to burn .VDK files to floppy disk to use on Dragon

Thanks for all the help guys ! I'm not sure which method I will use. Getting an old floppy drive for my old PC will probably be the cheapest option but maybe not the most reliable lol The advantage with the drivewire adapter option is that it has many uses beyond just copying files to floppy. And I...

Re: How to burn .VDK files to floppy disk to use on Dragon

The easiest way to transfer VDK files to a Dragon with floppy drive would be using pere's V2FLO dweeb and tormod's drivewire adapter.

Re: NitrOS9 V3.3.0 for DragonDos and Drivewire

I used the CoCo2 build, with

Code: Select all

PORT = d64
in port.mak to get the Dragon keyboard layout.
Hence the CoCo disk controller drivers.

Re: Dragon OS9 with drivewire support

Hi all, Can someone point me in the direction of how to boot up Nirtos-OS9 on a Dragon 64 (real but emulator instructions would be useful as well) with Drivewire support. I've got working HDB-DOS images plus DWLOAD support in ROM so the hardware is in place. After searching through various posts on...

Re: OS9 PD library, Prolog, 5.25" disks

Thanks for the PROLOG disk! This is a great addition to the archives. AFAIK Prolog is not available for download elsewhere for neither Dragon or CoCo. I'd be interested to download the OS9 User group and PD Library disks. I used to be a subscriber to one of these groups (can't remember which), but I...

CF IDE files are based on 512 byte sectors - with the second half of the sector unused. The SideWalk java utility is one of the tools that can be used to extract DS...

Re: Tano Dragon 64

Terry Reiters' email at cadigital is catalog@cadigital.com Here's the latest info I have dating about 5 months ago: California Digital still has a significant number of Tano Dragon 64 computers available in its warehouse. Original retail price was $400. California Digital is offering the Dragon at o...
