You mean you didn't run it already? I hardly thought anyone would attempt
to use an Atari computer without it.
I seem to recall that some early Toolkit allowed you to run the AB040
without it, but you most definitely wouldn't want that in any case.
Any version of NVDI that runs on a Falcon should be alright. I think that
means 2.5 and upwards.

I would have thought you could find NVDI just about everywhere that Atari
software is being sold, but a quick look through STComputer didn't show
up anything. Perhaps they just don't bother mentioning it in their ads. ;-)
Try calling your closeest Atari dealer.

It's too bad that there hasn't been any competition in the VDI accelerator
market. I mean, the authors must be making a fortune on that program with
the price they're asking!

The first bank should be the one that doesn't block insertion into the other.
On my AB040 that means the one farthest from the edge of the card.
