more testing

so I put the amiga floppy back on the amiga, and the amiga reads disks no problem.  Glad to see that my drive hadn’t fried through all my messing around.

I haven’t seen valid MFM coming from the drive in so long, I’m going to sniff the connection once again and take a peek.

Jacob: as far as collaboration, this sounds good — but I really have to get over this hurdle and get the thing basically working.

I’ve found a nice pdf, “How Magnetic Disks Work” which appears to be some bonus chapter of an A+ guide.  Pretty decent.

I’m still plugging away — I just cant for the life of me figure how I broke this damn thing.
