Re: 060 on 3640 board

The 060 isn't totally opcode compatible with the older CPUs of the 68k range.. Even if you build a 5V -> 3.3V adapter (they are pin compatible IIRC), you'd need to patch the kickstart somehow to get the machine to boot.

The commercial 060 solutions have a ROM in there that takes control before the kickstart is executed.

I was quite disappointed when I got my first 060 board - many things stopped working with the new CPU. It was fun to have early kickstarts running on my A4000 when I had a CSMK1/040. I think even 1.1 was able to boot into a CLI :-)
