.boot on DiskOnChip...

Hi…

The new driver for DiskOnChip and RTP 6.1 works like a charm. However, I
have the following situation:

I have a DiskOnChip2000 which is only 4Mb, as such, the build file says:

Note that the default image links at 4M. If you have 4M or less,

uncomment the line below

[image=1m]



\

  1. if I uncomment the line “# [image=1m]”, then the resulting
    *.ifs=.boot file will not boot. BUT if I leave the line commented (i.e.
    just as shown above), then the .boot file works. Why is this?

  2. I guess that a bit more fundamental question would be, why does the
    driver need the offset in the first place?


    I am just curios about what is going on. Thanks for your help.

Bests…

Miguel.

As far as I know this 4MB limit is limit on system memory, not storage
memory.
