They both seem to work save the usual tape drive which I have not gotten to yet. Both have the flexible disc ROM. What kind of discs can I hook up? I think the HP 9895 8" floppy would work. What about the HP 82901 5.25" floppy drive? How do I read/write program files from the disc interface?

There was only ever support for 8" diskette drives, and to support 9895 
you need the second version of the Diskette ROM which appears to be very 
rare.  I t sure would be nice if someone who has one of these ROMs would 
dump the contents or loan it to someone who could dump it, so that we 
might be able to clone the ROM module.
