What? Why havn't anyone told me this before? Cool, I must try this. :-)

BTW. For everyone who was waiting for me to upload some info on how to
boot MagiC on AB040+Nova system you have to wait a bit longer. I spent most
time rewriting a program I'm working on.

BTW. I have noticed a VERY strange thing indeed. I use Lattice C to write
all my programs with and if I set the Fast-RAM flags all my programms written
with Lattice takes up twice as much memory!!!!! Why the h*ll is this happening?
It's very annoying. Maybe there is something I need setting in the options before
I compile?

Something I have missed? :-(((((

Antoher hting, I compiled BM for Nova yesterday, atleast I enabled the intel
flag, but I could not get it to work. Has anyone tried this?

One more thing. :-)

Have you all tried PMDoom on your AB040s? If not, do it. It's realy nice. It's
"just" playble even att fullscreen mode. :-)
