|Remove the need for working 1541 drive/floppies|
- A MS-DOS compatible operating system. FreeDOS should do, but there are known compatibility problems with many DOS drivers. If you have problems, dig out those floppies or use the 'Make MS-DOS boot disk'-feature in Windows XP.
- 1541 emulating software
- 64HDD (commercial)
- 1541EMU (requires special cabling, OSS)
- A PC capable of running the chosen DOS version, and a LPT port
- Generally, the slower, the better - timings to the 1541 drive are way better this way. But do not go below 33Mhz, because then the timings will be incorrect too.
