    I really didnt either.... just had to say it.

    I certainly appreciate your looking!!

    edit:
    I may have just found one compliments of kb2syd's post in 'Model 4 Terminal Emulator' thread...

    They are .DSK files but I am sure I have software to work with them.... and I think my emulator works with .DSK images anyway.



    edit2:
    I am pleased to say that I now have a working copy of CPM+ for the 4p...
    An interesting note is: It will NOT BOOT on the emulator if the system is in 4p mode due to a 'fake' BOOTROM ...
    It WILL work in Model 4 w/FDC mode...
    A bit of a surprise, but at least it works!
    NOW.... I have to relearn everything so that I can get it to work with the 3.5" drives... and MORE SPACE!!! I didnt keep the SSDD 5.25s once I got the 3.5ers working... so more emulator play-time is in order!

    As long as I can find the system/bios file(s) I could probably connive a working system from it...
    It neednt be in the original format... and could even be in a DOS folder.

    Assistance would be greatly appreciated!
    I might be able to help you. I have an IBM PC/XT with a Matchpoint card and a modified 5.25" floppy drive, so I can read and write several hundred different kinds of 5.25" floppy formats. If I can download a CP/M image file I can _probably_ write it to the disk format your Tandy requires. (Probably. No guarantees.)

    I appreciate your input but as I mentioned I was able to find it useable on the emulator...
    It will likely need to be modified before I can use it on 3.5" drives...

    Sheesh, where'd all this recent activity come from? Have I been gone, or what?

    If anybody still needs CP/M+ for the Trashy-80 M-4 on original-type media, I know Mark has it. Whether he can lay his hands on sometime this century, I'll have to see but lemme know if it's still needed. (Last time I was over there he still had his 4 set up, but he has also swapped out the drives for 3.5", but kept the old media).

    I didn't see this in the sticky - Don Maslin's boot disk and ROM archive WAS finally rescued. You can find my copy of it here:
