There should be compatible IDE drivers on the Cloud-9 disk for NitrOS-9 Level1
and Level2. As I don't own the IDE interface nor use the SuperIDE driver, you
should confirm what I am saying with either Boisy or Mark at Cloud-9.
You will need to add the IDE drivers to the RBF Modules directory on the
apropriate NitrOS-9 distribution disk so that you can use the scripts to build a
boot disk to place on the IDE hard drive.
There is no real difference between OS-9 and NitrOS-9 for a beginning OS-9 user.
NitrOS-9 contains enhancements over OS-9 as the code has been "improved" and
many extra commands are included on the disk.
You should read any documentation you can find on OS-9 and all documentation on
NitrOS-9 from the Cloud-9 site.
