Update... I went back and added the SHELL to the OS9Gen and it finally
booted. DeskMate did load from this NitrOS9. However, it acted like there
was no joystick attached. Which NitrOS9 module deals with joysticks?

Ok, I've backed up a little bit. My current thinking tells me the easiest
way to get a slimmed down "OS-9" that works well with Double-sided drives is
going to be to take the NitrOS9 and strip out the bootstrap modules I don't
need. I've been toying around with saving the original bootstrap modules
and then using OS9Gen to rebuild the bootstrap leaving out some of the
modules. So far, I've only gotten a NitrOS9 copyright screen but it goes no
Here was the last list of original bootstrap modules...
REL KRN KRNP2
INIT BOOT IOMAN
RBF RB1773 D0
D1 D2 DD
SCF VTIO COVDG
TERM SCBBP P
SCBBT T1 PIPEMAN
PIPER PIPE CLOCK
CLOCK2 SYSGO SHELL
Latest OS9Gen I used included...
This resulted in bootup to NitrOS9 logo...went no further
Which modules are a must to include for proper bootup?!
