LSI Octopus

Been working on this over the past week. Finally got it to pass its self tests and ask for a system disc.

Re: LSI Octopus

Thanks to Carl, who cleaned up the video output quite a bit. Makes it a bit more usable now.

Re: LSI Octopus

Added some colour, and got the status line in Concurrent DOS to work (needed SCN2674 command 0xA6 to be implemented, why does the Octopus use undocumented commands?)

Finally found a way to get some CP/M software on disk images the Octopus can read, and fixed some issues with Z80 banking, so you can run this on Concurrent DOS 4.1 now...
