Does anyone have any experience getting an XM1541 (or XE1541) to work? I have the following model:
I got it years ago, but didn't have the time to try and get it to work. Looking things up now, it seems that the instructions for Linux are very complicated, and only work up to kernel 3.x (I do not know any currently available Linux distribution which uses such an old kernel). And the only versions of Windows supported are from Windows NT to Windows 8. All of my old Windows XP computers have died, however, and really the only old Windows computer I have left which is functional has Windows Millenium on it.
I'm okay with booting up my old Windows Me computer to a command prompt and running a DOS program to use this device. I have two Commodore 1541 floppy drives, and I think both are functional. So I could have one hooked up to my WinMe computer, and one hooked up to my Commodore 128.
What I'd really like, though, is if someone out there has an older linux install with OpenCBM working on it - or a liveCD with OpenCBM on it. Then I could just copy the whole OS and run it on any of my old computers. (Unlike Windows, Linux is not picky about being copied/moved into another computer.)
Thanks for any help!
