Since the shell that loads has the functionality of using cd/cx instead of chd/chx, and type ahead, I presume it is shell+. What is shell_21? Should I make a new shell file that uses it instead of the default shell?
shell_21 is the original shell that came with OS-9 Level One/Level Two. The shell with the merged modules is indeed shell+.
> Related, but not, can I cobbler a HD and make it a boot disk? I want to try it, but I'm afreaid if it doesn't work, I'll have to reformat the drive, and I just did that. I don't want to have to reformat the very next day, so I'm asking first. lol
cobbler writes out the bootfile in memory to a device. If your bootfile boots from a floppy disk, then cobbler'ing to a hard drive really doesn't buy you anything. Plus cobbler writes to track 34 (sectors 618-630) which would require special a special ROM. For those reasons, I don't think cobbler will work.
