Well if that does not work out the approach I would take is work 
backwards from the chip select on the memory and I/O devices, things 
that may throw you off are if PLDs or ROMs are used as part of the 
logic.  Chip select logic is usually pretty straight forward.  As has 
been discussed before I/O on a 8085 may be in a seperate address space 
of might mapped into the I/O space.  IO/-M selects between the two 
address spaces.
