Post subject:  atari tool Box on a flash cartridge

Hello All:

I have been wondering if it is possible to use a flash cartridge for a Atari Tool Box ?

I use Mydos 4.5 or 4.5.3 primarily in my large collection of disks and was wondering if it was possible to put that DOS on the cartridge and all your favorite utilities? I have done the same with my PC collection, but that changes everytime a new version comes out. I use Diskcom 3, Unarc/Arc, Vtocfix, and a few others, that will manipulate the disk structures (disk editors) and others that help me copy from disk to disk or disk to ram drive. My collection of disks are getting old, I am getting tired of ERROR #144 with older disks, and hate the thought of throwing them out.

Your opinion is welcome
JIM

Hello:

Yes I am posting on my above post about a Atari Tool Box, and I tried to get MYDOS 4.5 and many other DOS products to boot using my APE interface and wonder if I am doing something wrong. When I get my next shipment of 8mg cartridges, I am going to try to make that image to the cartridge and build from there.

What other tool box items should I think about to put on the cartridge?
