Hey guys, just to make it easier for others, this is how you get USB over ethernet going. Driver attached, instructions at the bottom of this page:

Matthias/Ingo I recommend you put the ethernet drivers inside your Lightning driver package. These were hard to find...

Unfortunately Lightnings don't fit with the Atari Fast-RAM board and from what I read the Storms are not available at the moment, otherwise I'd jump in and buy them.
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

I've seen pictures and I know that there's very little clearance between the RAM board and the rear of the VME riser.

Hi. Does anyone know where I might be able to get hold of a new GAL for my Nova VME - ISA card to use it with the lightning board?

If you can program GALs yourself, the files are available: http://www.newtosworld.de/downloads/tre ... a/download
Otherwise, please ask for the GAL while ordering the Lightning VME, we'll be able to arrange something for you.

Thanks. Time to learn another skill, GAL programming. Last chip I programmed was an EPROM at college many many many moons ago.

Any pointers as to which GAL chip I need for the Nova ISA adaptor and any suggestions for a good GAL programmer.
