Nova card and XBOOT

This is probably "old hat" for you Nova users, but I discovered a
way to use XBOOT to help out with the Nova boot. Incidentally, I
have not yet installed the Nova board -- I opened the Falcon case
and decided I wasn't in the mood to rearrange wires right then.
Anyway, if you use XBOOTs batch file process you can write a series
of instructions to rename the .SYS files in your NVDI/GDOS folder
to and from SYS/SYX. I thought I was going to have to write a
program to do that, but XBOOT seems to do the trick as the batch
file is run immediately after choosing a set.

Hey Doug, can you write a patch to...something... to allow people
to use their 14 mb boards with a Nova, say masking out the upper
4 megs? This way we drop from 14 to 10 megs instead if 4 megs when
using the Nova. I know someone patched the STE to allow a 2.5
mb memory option. I've got plenty of Fast RAM but not everything
uses it and dropping back to 4 mb may be tight for some programs.

32 mb SIMMs are now selling for under $40 here in the DC area!
Imagine, maxing out your AB more under $80!!!
