TOS ROM SWITCHER? 576K is a bit odd?

Hmmm, 4 banks of 128k.

Plus a single 64k bank of Boot ROMs for a boot loader/selector seems likely.

=576k.

Multi-cartridge board. (Not TOS, wrong range...) Rip the ROMs out of your 'single' cartridges, and plonk them on this. Select on boot. Nice.

EmuTOS 0.8.7 is able to run from a cartridge (without AES/desktop).

This board would be nice to test it on real hardware :)
