I posted here a week ago or so asking for some links on reading from the fdc in a protected mode operating system using ports and such. While the links were informative, I am having trouble getting any routines working. I managed to write some stuff, such as a seek function and some other small things, but I don''t know how to set up the DMA chip and read sectors from the disk. Does anyone know of a good tutorial on the subject? I have googled and googled so don''t just point me there, please! I also have already searched visopsys, osdev, bonafide,therx osrc and geezer''s site, but i can''t find anything beyond technical docs and one tutorial that doesn''t provide much test code. Thanks for the help
