over in the marketplace forum I've posted a request to find a used or cheap IDE interface /compact flash solution to load games and so on into my IIe.
Its been decades since i sold a few 2e's and 2c's and macs in a shop and I haven't much retained knowledge of the IIe at all. I have a 2e enhanced, 2 x floppy drives, and dos disks, would now like to get a CF card loaded and booted and play some games etc etc.
please can someone answer a few questions:
Rich at dreher.net seems to be constructing a new card but that feels beyond my err, "fiscal abilities" :(. as does probably, reactivemicro's microdrive and the focus card, really. I'm in UK so shipping adds even more.
can anyone suggest a cheaper alternative? I have cf cards and ide <> adaptors already. used?
and, what do i need to do to boot dos and load games etc from a CF card? which dos, does that go in a particular partition etc, will any game or program then "just work" on any of the above cards? does ciderpress sort all that stuff out, is it simple? any guides please point me at them!
Sorry for perhaps are what obvious questions but I've forgotten totally and cant quite find the answers I'm looking for.
TIA all! Iain
