The _FRB cookie, yes. Its value is a pointer to an 64K buffer. But maybe
original TOS 4.04 does not check this, because a real Falcon does not have TT-

That's what I was thinking too. In the case of the CT60 card, there was a also a TOS replacement with lots of patches to extend the capability of the falcon to 32 bit space in addition to supporting a 68060

As you say, real falcon doesn't support TT RAM, so maybe an extra program would be needed at boot to intercept TOS accesses and ensure FDC data are transferred between RAM and TT RAM.
