Ya know, the PS1 chips look like generic timer chips you can find at radioshack. I've always wondered if that's all they are.

I use the PS-X-Change disc. Unfortunatly you can not make a copy of it since there is some special track on the original that cannot be burned. If I were you I'd look into the chip since the disc swapping is a major pain, wears out the spindle quicker, and the disc is more prone to getting scratched.

If you could copy a boot disc there would be no need for one, like the DC

I thought that too. I just got one, and I was like "This looks very familiar." Then I looked at the number on it. It's something like "12 C 6551A". That pattern is the ones used by PIC microcontrollers. I used to program for a PIC16C67. I'm assuming this is a PIC12C6551A. The little M on it is also a sign, since that's Microchip (the company), and they make PIC chips.
