Subject: BOOTING FROM THE MIO RMDSK
Date: Sun Jul 30 09:11:28 1989


IS THERE ANYWAY TO BOOT AN 8-BIT SYSTEM FROM THE ICD MIO RAMDISK?
AND/OR ARE THERE ANY PROBLEMS WITH LEAVING BOTHE THE MIO AND
(130XE) CONNECTED AND TURNED ON FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME?
MY 130XE "SPAZZED" OUT AFTER I LEFT IT AND THE MIO CONNECTED AND
TURNED ON FOR A FEW DAYS, SO I HAVE BEEN TURNING OFF THE 130XE, 
BUT LEAVING THE MIO ON WHEN LEAVING THE SYSTEM FOR AN EXTENDED
PERIOD OF TIME ==> REBOOTING FROM DISK ALL OF THE TIME...
        THANKS,

        BTB

        Check your manual.  You can 
configure the RAMdisk as drive 1.  This
should work most of the time.  Just be sure to back up your system often so you
don't loose anything if you have a 
power glitch.  You will have to start
from scratch with real disk drives each
time that happens.  The good news is
that, for most of N.E. Ohio that doesn'thappen often.
                        Your Co-sysop

             Thanks for asking.
