The simulator executable always starts up with a default hardware 
configuration (a 32K 2116 CPU, no extra firmware, and every possible I/O 
interface card assigned somewhere in the I/O space).  The supplied 
simulator command files change that default to match the Access (or 2000F, 
etc.) hardware requirements, but the changes are not sticky across 
sessions.  So restarting the simulator reverts to the default 

In other words, running the simulator with "hp2100" gets you the default 
configuration.  Running with "hp2100 tsb-auto" (e.g.) starts with the 
default, and then the "tsb-auto.sim" command file execution changes it to 
match the TSB requirements before bootstrapping the system.
