When you rompage it sticks the emulated disk in front of real drives.. Geneveos supports an emulated disk image .. SO DSK1 is now DSK2
Is this true even if the user has no fixed disk storage, has performed no drive mappings in MDOS, including no ramdisk declarations?
I would think the emulation of DSK1 should be off when using ROMPAGE, or I would expect DSR's to collide.
I have tested with the GPL emulation of DSK1 option in both OFF and ON position, even though, I've not mapped anything to this emulated drive. I get no difference in behavior. DSK1 accesses my physical disk 1, and DSK2 accesses my physical disk 2, but I get a device error if ROMPAGE is on.
I also used CSAVE to dump my MINIMEM, and ran the little CRU experiment, the FDC DSR appears to be paged in. Looking at the GENMOD docs, and the MEMEX docs, I believe I have the switches correct. Switch 2 of the MEMEX gives me more memory or not. The docs say when on, It still doesn't shadow 0xBA.
Also, curious, am I correct that ROMPAGE as a feature showed up in MDOS 5.00? And was that in the mid-90s?
