Ah, okie. Yes, the Indus is excellent. Does the Atari version have the ROM
disk that the Commodore version does? (For those not in the know, the
Commodore Indus GT drive has a drive 1 [LOAD"$1",8] with DOS Wedge, a
fast loader and some other utilities permanently in drive ROM that can
just be loaded out of the drive instantaneously.)

The Commodore Indus GT also came with some (moderately pathetic) office
software, but it was an interesting bonus.

I also like the fact that the Indus GT works 100% with my Epyx FastLoad
cartridge, which I will *not* part with. There are other and bigger
fastload and freezer cartridges, but the FastLoad is reliable, cheap to
replace, and enormously compatible (I think I can count on one hand the
programs in my library that won't cooperate with it).
