Installing CP/M on your S-100 computer workshop

signup has started, seats are limited

If you have other computers such as the Kaypro,
Advantage, etc which already have CP/M running, you can
use this too. They just need to be 100% working. As this is
not a repair workshop.

Basically, even though it would have CP/M already running
on this, the hands-on training will show you all the technical
details about how to configure and install CP/M on your
current machine. Then you can apply this knowledge to any
other machine that wouldn't have CP/M already.

You would need to get prepared with all the technical manuals
for your machine to extract the configuration info so you can
edit and patch the CP/M source code to support your
machine(that's what you will learn). We would help in locating
any manuals you might be missing.

For the vintage computer enthusiasts, in conjunction with
the MARCH Computer Museum and the Delaware Hackerspace
group, we like to invite you to a new workshop this year
involving vintage computers.

This new workshop is about CP/M and it will
teach you how to install, build and configure CP/M on your
vintage S-100 computer system. All the necessary steps are
shown during the lecture and afterward is a hands-on
training session which will let you upgrade your S-100
computer with a floppy disk based system and CP/M.
Instruction and lecture will be provided by Rich Cini of
the Altair32 emulator project.

Please look at the link below about the workshop checklist
for a detailed list of requirements about this workshop.
You'll need to know what to prepare beforehand to get ready
for this workshop. Ask any questions you have about getting
ready before the start of the workshop. A knowledge of
assembly programming, S-100 hardware, and CP/M operation is
required for this workshop. Please do not come unprepared.

We currently have seats for 12 workbenches for those who
want the hands-on training. An additional 10 seats are
available for those who like to watch and learn. If we
happen to get more requests for this workshop, we will try
to accommodate as many people as possible. This is a first
come, first serve event, sorry, but we cannot accommodate
latecomers. Once the registration opens, please specify
which seat you like to reserve.

The workshop is located very close to I-95 for those that
are drivng. More information can be found at the
Delaware Hackerspace website below.
