Once, I get something going, I'll let you know.

Hopefully THIS one will work...  I actually have two others, one
refuses to read any disk, the other one has a very loose connector
(the big one connecting it back to the CPU board) and my attempt to
replace it was, let us say, "less than successful".
This board has cleaned-up fairly well, although some of the chips show
visible rust on them. I'm going to try it as it is, and if it doesn't
work, I'll try using some of the chips out of one of the other boards.
My lack of an ocsilliscope and the fact that I haven't really worked
on any electronics since college isn't helping my effort ;-)
