Falcon TOS v ST TOS

What was the difference between falcon tos and ST TOS?

        Is it primarily the same thing? I recall ST TOS being pretty stagnant
thru its lifetime. (They ever get it to multitask?)

I am not a TOS specialist but I do know that MultiTOS (the multitasking
version of TOS, based on MINT I think) runs on a Mega STE.

Denis

PS : By the way, is there anybody here selling a TT or a Falcon in
Europe (preferably in France or Belgium) ?

Falcon TOS (TOS 4.x) mainly includes the Falcons hardware features into the
OS, this means better graphics, better sound, DSP support, etc...

Multitasking can be acheived with replacement OS like MiNT and MultiTOS or
MagiC.

1. TOS 1.4 Upgrade from Tos 1.0 on a 1040StFm

I am attempting to install 1.4 Roms in my ST (6 chip set.)

My TOS 1.0 (1.2?) Roms are printed on the surface with individual numerals
frorm 0150-0155.  (Two High, Three wide):

0150 0151 0152
0153 0154 0155

Are how they are layed out on the board (Under the power supply)

My 1.04 's have the following labels: L0,L1,L2,H0,H1,H2.    Where do these go
in respect to my TOS 1.0 chips. P.S. the sockets are labeled as follows:

U2 U3 U4
U5 U6 U7

with U2 being in the corner closest to the back and the Midi Ports. (Left
side when keyboard is on and ready to be typed at.)

Beyond that there are no other marks that make the chips unique in labeling.


Thanks.
