Some time ago I may have posted (I can't find it if I did ;)) about micro computer based on the Altair 8800. Recently a 2 disk drive (ICs) and additional memory has been added and it includes CP/M. Since I'm new at CP/M I'm looking for a basic user manual/doc. Also a pointer to where I can get software such as Visicalc.

You could start with http://www.gaby.de/ecpm.htm
and from there you'll probably find everything you need.
I'm not sure if I've seen Visicalc anywhere, but Supercalc is out there for sure.

I'm doing another run of the RAM drive boards for the Altair 8800micro. The RAM drive is a battery backed RAM board that goes inside the Altair 8800micro and gives you the ability to run CP/M 2.2 and 3.0 with two drive system. With custom utilities you can add/copy programs to/from your SD card to the RAM drive! This will probably be the last run of these for a while since I'm working on a couple other projects.
