More Northstar Assistance Requested

All righty then, thanks to the kind help of Allison, the Northstar will
now attempt to boot off a drive set to DS0. The CPU's POJ address is now
set the Northstar MDS-AD3 controller card. On boot, it goes
read-read-read, read-read-read, read-read-read and gives up.

Doug Coward had sent me an NSDOS boot diskette, which I'm trying to boot,
and something doesn't seem happy. Is there any reason I couldn't use the
MPI-52 drive I'm trying to use? Is there any reason I shouldn't try a
known-good Shugart SA400? I also tried a half-height 360k floppy drive
for giggles with the same result.

Does anyone have boot diskettes for CP/M for this machine? Can anyone
offer advice or assistance? In short, HELP! =-)
