ET-3400 Floppy Drive

Dear Mauricio ( and to whom it may concern );

The original posting was based on a misconception that there was a Byte
magazine article ( long ago ) on this subject ( adding a floppy drive to a
Heathkit ET-3400 ). Since this was not true, I decided to design one myself
( I am a disgruntled ex-aerospace engineer ). The trick is to come up with
"simple" solutions that are not over-kill since the ET-3400 doesn't possess
a lot of processing power. Plus you need a kind of " boot ROM " to tell the
3400 how to talk to the floppy interface. Progress is being made, and I hope
to have a " cost effective " solution early next year. I hope this helps.

Best regards, Steven C.
