The hardsector floppy controller (H17) docs and ROM, as well as a ROM
listing are in the archive, as are docs on the H37/67
soft-sector/hard-disk and H47 8" floppy controllers. There are also
dumps and manuals for the XCON (0-org) and PAM37 options. I've got the
listing for XCON (not yet uploaded) but not the PAM37 ROM.

I think the H17 floppy system was by far the most common setup. The
ability to mix-and-match between real and virtual H8s and H17s would be
very nice indeed.
