I am the proud new owner of a 512k board for my Atari 800.
I must confess that about the only way to use this memory is
as a Ramdisk, and I do have the program to do this.  

The problem??
   If/When the thing locks up on me and will not respond to
System-Reset, the only thing I can do is to reboot, and lose
everything.  I would like one more avenue to try, that of the
wiring in a button to a 'hard' reset, that is, reset the
microprocessor.  Once upon a time there were articles on how
to do it.  (a wire, a switch, and a pull-up/pull-down resistor)
Anybody remember how to do it??

Part 2:
   Will this solve my problem, or will a hard reset to the
microprocessor reboot the whole machine anyways??
