Patched TOS 1.04 with the IDE patch, and it works fantastically.

Well done, IDE with good compatibility
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

The larger one is the Megabus to 68k socket adaptor. The idea behind this is that a Mega ST can use two 68k upgrades without stacking

The smaller one is a Megabus to IDE adaptor but with inline buffers. Its based on the PP interface. I've added an ATF22V10 instead of the Gal as the chips are still easily obtained.

:thumbup: You could move that LS chip into the GAL now you got a 22V10. PP only used it for its open collector, as the 16V8 couldn't do that. The 22V10 can.
