Breakage happens between 0.138 (works - goes to prompt and allows "DIR") and 0.139 (does not detect).

Some time after this report was created, the fdc was changed to the new one. OG then got kayproii to boot, but the remainder were still broken.

Recently I rewrote the NMI control and this this fixed the booting problem. Lastly, support for the old kaypro disks was added back in.

The driver is now back at the state it was before the problems started happening.
