BBC Master BIOS

I just got a BBC Master with no BIOS. What version BIOS should I get? How big is it? Can I burn It to EPROM? Where can I download it?

Anything else I need to know to get my master working?

BBC Master and Watford DFS 1.44

I have a BBC master with Acorn DFS in multi ROM. I loaded Watford DFS in Sidways RAM slot 7 . I do *ROMS and I see it. Now I do CTRL-BREAK but get Acorn DFS. I do D BREAK and I get Acorn 1770 DFS. How do I access the Watford DFS?

Thanks!

BBC Master and Sideways RAM

Is there a document that explains how many Sideways RAM slots there are? How do you load a ROM to them , what the addresses are?

Basically everything you need to know to get ROMS to load in your Master

Cheers!
