atarisio (disk emulator for use with Atari 8-bit computer and SIO2PC)

AtariSIO allows a Linux system to act as one or more disk drives,
a printer, and/or a cassette drive for an Atari 8-bit (400/800/XL/XE)
computer, using an SIO2PC cable.

Even without SIO2PC or a real Atari, this package includes some utilities
that are useful for manipulating and examining Atari disk, tape, and
executable images.

A real 16550A UART (or close derivative) is required. In particular,
atarisio does NOT work with USB to RS232 adaptors.

= READ README.Slackware about the SETUID and GROUP variables =
= before building the package! =

Before you can run atariserver or atarixfer, you will need the atarisio
kernel module loaded. If you're dedicating a serial port for use with
atariserver, you can add the following line to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules or
rc.local (as you prefer):

/sbin/modprobe atarisio port=/dev/ttyS0

(Replace ttyS0 if you're using a different serial port, of course)

If you need to use your serial port for other purposes, it's a little
less cut-and-dried. You will have to either manually modprobe and rmmod
the module as needed, or write yourself a script to do the job (possibly
also starting up agetty when the module is unloaded, or SLIP mode if
you're using FujiChat on your Atari, etc etc).
