Nothing specific in mind right now. I have BASIC but I want to get Fortran installed so I can run Adventure. This is all for fun rather than a specific application.

Correct, both from SIMH. Stock version of v4 in an RK format with DD as the boot device. Right now I only have a simple v5.03 in tape format from Malcolm and not in RK or RL formats.

I don't have one but now that I know how the slots are numbered I should be ok.

I don't have any other storage media at this point, DEC or Heath. I believe Heath only produced a floppy system for it. I don't have any Heath-specific software packages. 

Space in the shop is at a premium so I'm glad that I have the TU58 emulator.
