That is true, but if you set /d0 to say b: and then try and do even a
DIR /D0, it does not
work. The drive spins but returns either a seek or rad error. I have a
old 486 DX with
a real 360K coco drive as the B drive.
You should be able to put a OS9 boot disk in it and it should boot
OS9. It does not.
I know the drive works with a COCO, since I bought at one of the last
fests I attended.
