If you have experience with the 100mb IDE on the Adam maybe you can answer a few questions:
1. How do I get CP/M on one of the partitions? Or can I? I have the DDT
2. How compatible is TDOS with CP/M?
3. Since the IDE adapter uses the same slot as the AdamLink is it right to assume that I have to copy any software to DDT from the IDE, remove the IDE and put in the AdamLink to be able to use it?
I will go to question 2 first; TDOS ( Tony Morehen's Disk Operating System) is a CPM 2.2 twin - even better with more useable memory and a other improvements. It runs all CPM programs and is for all intents and purposes CPM itself. For instance, in Printmaster, TDOS will support using all three phases (borders, graphics, text) while CPM only has enough memory to support two phases.
I don't know how to get it onto a partition due to the fact that when the "hard drive" software was written by Tony Morehen, he implemented TDOS as the operating sytem of choice.
Yes, you would have to remove the IDE card in order to insert the modem for use. IF you need the modem badly, there was a center slot IDE/printer card that Mark Gordon made, and there may be some floating out there on the internet; but I have never seen one for sale.
