1. Overview

The popular Commodore 8-bit home-computers like the C-64 and the VIC-20 are using a custom serial bus to talk to attached devices (disk drive, printer). The cbm4linux kernel module provides an interface to this bus at TALK/LISTEN level, similar to the one provided by the Commodore kernel routines, but low level bus control is available as well. The serial devices are connected to the PC's parallel port via a XM1541 or XA1541 and, optionally, a XP1541 or XP1571 add-on.
