Abstract

A method is described to allow the PC AT Simulator to share the diskette devices with other AIX processes. The PC AT Simulator is an application written to run on the IBM RT PC* on top of AIX*. AIX is the multitasking, multiuser operating system which runs on the RT PC. The RT has a RISC (reduced instruction set computer) 32-bit processor.
