The SDX-package.

Simply put the .ROM file in your FAT32-area and load it with the ATARIMAX FAT32-loader.

This is 3rd-party software, please consult the SDX-homepage and manual.
You need to modify the original SDX-image to your needs.
http://sdx.atari8.info/index.php

Also download the latest SDX version from their homepage for MyIDE-][

MyIDE.SYS and MYIDE2.SYS is 3rd party software from Jonathan Halliday.
This is the driver for APT-access.
http://www.atari8.co.uk/apt/myide/index.html

I got this info from the SDX-guys.
There are 3 setups:
one for 64k machines and one for XE's
one for <any machine> with MyBIOS in ROM.

64k:
USE NONE
DEVICE SPARTA
DEVICE SIO /A [needed for MyBIOS to use IDE]
DEVICE ATARIDOS [needed for DOS MyDOS directories]
DEVICE JIFFY
;DEVICE RAMDISK [not needed, you have SRAMDISK at D8]
DEVICE MYIDE.SYS or MYIDE2.SYS [needed for APT access]

128k or more:
USE BANKED
DEVICE SPARTA
DEVICE SIO /A [needed for MyBIOS to use IDE]
DEVICE ATARIDOS [needed for DOS MyDOS directories]
DEVICE JIFFY
;DEVICE RAMDISK [not needed, you have SRAMDISK at D8]
DEVICE MYIDE.SYS or MYIDE2.SYS [needed for APT access]

MyBIOS from ROM:
USE BANKED
DEVICE SPARTA OSRAM
DEVICE SIO /A [needed for MyBIOS to use IDE]
DEVICE ATARIDOS [needed for DOS MyDOS directories]
DEVICE JIFFY
;DEVICE RAMDISK [not needed, you have SRAMDISK at D8]
DEVICE MYIDE.SYS or MYIDE2.SYS [needed for APT access]

This CONFIG.SYS will work best with MyBIOS, APT and SDX combined.

For AUTOEXEC.BAT you can do this.
TIME [for setting the time]
DATE [for setting the date]
TD ON [for the date/time line at the top of the screen, be aware this costs user RAM]

Note that "USE NONE" on a 64KB system may raise MEMLO too high to run any software at all. Installing the MYIDE2.SYS driver will raise MEMLO even higher. Please be aware that this is a serious practical limitation to using SDX with a RAM-based MYBIOS on a 64KB machine. ;)
