So, did any copies of this make it into the wild. Anyone have copies they can image. Anyone have a copy they'd like to sell?

I finally got a tandy 2000 up and running, and would love to see Xenix on it.

Yep. I saw them. What I'm really looking for is one of the 4 port serial boards. I keep losing these auctions.

kb - how about a hard drive kit?

Drive, controller, cables, etc... everything except the up-rated power supply?
HiRes color graphics controller?


You know, i make sme cringe now, but I remember when I worked at the South Beach Radio Shack (RS + Computer Center, it was called) , in like, oh, 1988/89, we dumped *ALL* Model I/III/IV software. I mean, it was a HUGE pile probably about 12-15' round, 4-5' high.

New.
Sealed
In the binders.

I would be interested in any and all model 2000 hardware/software. I sent you a PM about it.

That's painful to think about.

Around 1993 we did a hardware housecleaning. Here's what ended up in the dumpster:
3 model 6000hd, 3 model 16a, an Epson QX-10, 20 Wyse 50 terminals, and many of the RS external HD cases (the ones for both the 8 meg winchesters and the ones for 5.25" MFM drives).
