The true test of whether you need something or not is to throw it away. Well I do (need it) and I did (throw it away). Bummer. :(

Anyway, the CO16-68K was a 68000 based co-processor add-on system for any system running CP/M-80. It came with CP/M-68K and used the CP/M-80 system as a file and I/O server. Something like the TRS-80 model 16. The CO16-68K could also be used as a RAM disk under CP/M-80.

Now to my problem. I need a binary image of the boot ROMS for this system. Bin, hex or Motorola S-records would be fine. When we moved from a big house to a small apartment some things had to go. I thought, and thatís my problem, that I had a copy of the ROMS on one of my old CP/M-80 disks. Imagine my shock when I got out that set of disks only to find that I didnít have a copy. Whatís worse is the source file I was working on got truncated so Iím really up a creek. :shock:

What I want to do is build a new system but with fewer parts. The original had two boards about 8 by 8 inches plus a daughter board with the expansion connector. That system sucked down 2.5 amps 5 volts and got hotter than the dickens. I think I can do a little better than that.

Anyway, if some kind sole out there has one of these things I would very much appreciate getting a copy of the boot ROMs.

Thanks
Don

Hi there, I have all of these things you ask for. It forms a part of the ramdisk system on my old CP/M system.
Email me if you still are looking for parts or such.
btw mine doesn't get hot maybe yours is faulty!

Although it is very kind of you to offer to help the original poster, the thread is from 2006 and, since the person hasn't logged in for 15 months now, chances aren't good that he'll see it. However, stranger things have happened.

It's fairly common to post a reply to a old thread (I've done it myself), so, don't worry about it, you'll get used to looking at the date.

Welcome to the forum.

Ah, yes you are absolutely correct I didn't even look at the date, Thanks for the heads up I will be more alert next time.
