As I have some free time now, I scrolled old related correspondence from 2010 and would like

The question history is like this:
When I started to work with creating of Russian version of EMUTOS, I
tested it and found that while running under STeem it gives an errors
like do not find some RSC-files while they are not in root folder of HDD.
Also from Vincent Riviere I heard that EMUTOS has problem to load
FYI This error is not exist while running EMUTOS under Hatari or
AranyM and also not exist while running STeem with real TOS image.
Could you please check from your side ?
Petr Stehlik told that STeem uses some hack of TOS image, while that
image is already loaded to the program memory (so original TOS file is
As EMU TOS project is growing, it would be nice to have EMU TOS images
also working with STeem - for me STeem is remaining most convenient

That's not a bug but a limitation. The floppy version of EMU TOS tries to directly access hard drive,
while Steem emulates on a higher level, intercepting TOS commands.
