Should end up with a lot more conventional memory free not having all the MS Flash and Doublespace drivers loaded, but RAM would be a lot tighter overall since Windows would be running from the C: drive, rather than in-place from the ROM card. On the other hand, being able to run in 386-enhanced mode would afford you the use of virtual memory.

Dave,

That's great that you were able to duplicate the ROM card. I know several people on the old Omnibook list had tried is but had ran into many difficulties.

I have a OB-425 card, version 1.1S laying around. You are welcome to try copying it. I could also loan you a OB-430 card from one my working OB-430 units to try copying.

Let me know if you are interested.
