    The first working FreHD2.

    We all worked together to achieve this result.
    Pascal did a great job on the hardware, Fred did a perfect job on writing and debugging the new firmware for the FreHD2 and I did the
    testing of the hardware, software and the final result.

    Fred has made it possible to have his FreHD working on the Model II family with small adaptions, you need some small patches on the hardware, you need a new GAL and PIC and there is a new VHD format.
    There is one setback, you need a MODEL II harddisk adapter type 2 to interface the FreHD2, but we are talking with Pascal and Ian for a solution.

    We proved that it is possible to have an affordable harddisk on your Model II family, but be patient there has a lot to test before it will be available for all.

    Thanks to Fred, Pascal and Hans.
