Re: Award286 clone

Lots of improvements for the 286 Greatpsycho! Is that your favorite processor? I have a 286 PC purchsed in 1992 and it is still operatable. So I'm working on it. Emulation of Award286 clone is working properly at most common cases, but it is still imperfect and there are lot of things to implement.
