   With some kind assistance from Bob Applegate, I now have OS/9 Level I 
(the NitrOS9 distribution) up and running on an all-new-hardware 
(Corsham Tech) SS-50 6809 system.  Some of the material has not yet been 
released, and Bob is still digging for some of the details and sources, 
but it boots and runs.
