         CyberMap - A kickrom mapper for some A3000/A4000 axxelboards
        ==============================================================

CyberMap  is  a  tool to copy a kickimage or the current Kickstart rom to a ram
shadow.   This speeds up Rom operation and increases general throughput of your
system.

Use CPROM argument to copy the built-in roms to ram shadow.  Give a filename to
load disk-based kickimage.  See examples below.

Requierments:
-------------

  A4000:	  o Commodore 040 card or CyberStorm MK1
		  o >1 MB FastRam on your A4000 Mainboard (!)
		    (Caution: Check RAM size jumper on mainboard !)
  		  o raw 512 kB KickRomImage ($f80000 Image) for A4000
                    (anything > Kick 2.04 will do the job)
  		    (needs "A4000 magic" resident)
		  o Good luck ... :-)  it will work or not !

  A3000:          o CyberStorm MK2
                  o >=4 MB FastRam
  		  o regular Kickstart rom installed, no bootroms !
  		  o raw 512 kB KickRomImage ($f80000 Image) for A3000
                    (anything > Kick 2.04 will do the job)
  		    (needs "A3000 bonus" resident)

  A2000:          o Blizzard 2060
                  o >=4 MB FastRam on Blizzard 2060
                  o Enabled MAPROM Jumper  ( see CyberStorm MK2 manual )
                  o raw 512 kB KickRomImage ($f80000 Image) for A2000
                    (anything > Kick 2.04 will do the job)

  General:	  o SetPatch & 680x0.libary MUST NOT be loaded !!!!!
                  o Do not use Rekick ($200000). It will not work.
                  o built-in Kickstart release 2.04 or higher.


Usage:
------

 Add the following line to the start of your startup-sequence

  <cybmap-path>/CyberMap  <options> <filename or CPROM>

 Example:

   > CyberMap MK2 CPROM			; Copy built-in rom
					; to CyberStorm MK2 Shadow

   > CyberMap MR devs:kickstart		; Load kickimage to shadow
   					; to CyberStorm MK1 & A3640 shadow


Options:
--------

   F=FORCE/S:	    o  Use the FORCE Keyword to load the image with
		       a) either the same or newer ROM Images as the image
			  currently loaded
     		       b) or if the image CRC is wrong.

   MR=MROM/S:       o  Set this , if used on CyberStorm MK1 or A3640
   B2=B2060/S:	    o  Set this , if used on B2060
   MK2/S:           o  Set this , if used on CyberStorm MK2

   CPROM=COPYROM/S  o  Copy current rom to shadow.
   FILE             o  Filename and path of Kickstart image.

   RF=RESETFMEM/S   o  Force using Resetcode in ChipMem
   RC=RESETCMEM/S   o  Force using Resetcode in FastMem

   V=VERBOSE/S	    o  Output diagnostics (Use only for debugging)


ToDo:
-----
		  o  Add support for A12x0 Blizzard cards
		  o  Add autodetection for supported accellerator cards

Known Bugs:
-----------

	o Sometimes RESET code does not work ! Reset with three
	  finger salute. Try RC or RF arguments to force alternative
          reset code !

        o The A4000 maprom feature doesn't work on some A4000 computers.
          Please check requierments. MapRom option uses undokumented
          features of your A4000 system.
