What's the differenct between "$" and "*"? I've seen both used in this
context. How does one change a device number? I'm not Commodore expert. The
only other Commodore product I've had is a C-16, and that seems like ages ago.

I'll give it a try. How long should I wait for a device not present
message? It's just sitting there looking for the floppy. I've got both the
C-64 manual and the 1541 manual, but can't see anything that'll help me.

I'd like to get a second drive if this one is good, or two drives if this
one is bad, but I think the problem is just me sitting in front of it, and
not the drive.
