Thanks Bill. I downloaded a few of them…none of the smaller ones fully booted (only the 16K BASIC got to the “Standby” message) on my test setup but I could read and write the disks using the RDOS monitor and it partially passed the “T” test (it stopped with a sector error half-way). I’m using a TM100-2A drive (DSDD 360K 5.25”). So, I think I feel good that the board works. I would have loved to get it to fully boot into something but it’s probably close enough for now.

One of these should work, note txt files that explain some of them.
