    Default Small-LDOS 5.1 rev 0.3??

    So, found a floppy labeled SMALL LDOS and of course in a bad shaped envelope and suspecting mold,
    I removed the diskette from the envelope and used Windex to clean the surfaces then inserted the disk into a clean envelope
    and voila SMALL LDOS 5.31 anyone ever seen this OS? It looks like a proper software release as per label showing on the floppy with registration #

    A little online researched and ;
    1) Discover at the time; LDOS was selling for 159.99$ and Smal-LDOS was selling 59.99$
    2) Ah found an article, Smal-LDOS is actually a System-80 OS, but continued to be sold for the Model III as well ! https://i.imgur.com/zBbUVZR.png found the information in the "Molymerx Mail Order Software Catalog of 1982"
    3) then complete article in the 1982 Infoworld magazine https://archive.org/details/bub_gb_C...os?q=smal-ldos

    I compiled the last two into a docx (MS Word) document for prosperity, and I contacted someone on Facebook that has a copy of the 150 pages manual. maybe get a pdf done of it as seemingly its not archived yet
    I am making a copy of the original diskette and make sure nothign is wrong with it, and I will make it available on DSK/HFE format to whom wants a copy (pm me)
