Atari 1040 STe

MC68901P  Multifunction Peripheral
MC6850P   Async comm
YM2149F   Sound
WD1772    Floppy controller
MC68000   CPU
MM9092    Blitter
C300588   Video shifter
LMC1992   Stereo tone and volume

Anyways, It doesn't boot with the case on, but with the case removed
it works just fine.  I tried to exchange some disks with a linux PC
without success, to try to get VolksForth[2] to work.  Apparently
there is now a project to simulate the floppy drive[3].  I closed the
box and put it back into storage..  Can't do much with it except stare
in awe ;)

Apparently the wikipedia page[4] has a description of the chips.
