HPDrive works well for RTE-6/VM. I had it set up to emulate a 7925H,
and loaded it up with some additional software and games (everyone wants
to play games, even on a mini). I had 3 login sessions going, one each on
the 2645A, the 2647A and on the PC running QCTerm through a serial port.
I had the PC hidden under the table. :-)
Someone needs to come up with the hardware equivalent of HPDrive so we
don't need to dedicate an entire Windoze system just to emulate a drive.
