I have documented the process of installing the 64K memory expansion kit into a PET 8032. This would also work in a 4032.

Interesting project Bill.

Was there any software released to take advantage of the Pet's extra memory in the day, say for the 8096?

I may have some packages that required the full 96 K, some have extra PROMS that come with the software. I also have some dev stuff from Toronto's user group. I never really played much with the 8032 other than to test the hardware. At some point I will post a catalog of this kind of info.

If I feel brave, I'd like to attempt to go further and upgrade this 8032 into a SuperPet, wouldn't that be a project? I think it can be done, but I have to do more research and see if I have the parts.
