You can if you like. I know what is going to happen already. :)
I thought there was a driver for the SCII, no halt, so that you didn't loose the data you were typing. Make sure you are using the correct one to get the benefit of the SCII's no halt.

This is my throughput with zmodem also using scsisys 1.1 hard drive with
modified os9, but not nitros. Using a Disto super II with a 4in1 card
serial port. I do have a bootable Nitros9 floppy with the scsisys
drivers on them, so I could give it a shot with that, and let you know.
>From my standpoint, the nitros9 floppy drivers lock up keyboard input, a
feature I do not personally like. I tend to type ahead a lot when doing
stuff. Even on High-end Sun servers running solaris. :-)
