Since I have no maint docs, does anyone know what the error
message "System Status 02" mean during a Kaypro 10 boot?
The ROM signs on, CP/m signs on and then it hangs with that message.
ROM 1.9e CP/m V 2.2F
10M ready light is on, Floppy light is on, floppy does not access,
keyboard clicks but no effect. multiple resets return to the same state.
Cheerz and Thanks
OK, I'm stumped. I'm finally getting around to adding one of the 380Mb
ESDI HD's that I got to replace the 150Mb ones I've been using in my
PDP-11/73. So I check out "The Tech Page" and while they've got the drive,
they don't give any of the jumper settings. Does anyone happen to have the
settings for this drive?

Uh oh. Chris is rather furious with me.
I guess I really should have culled his phone number, but I really thought I
was doing EVERYONE a favour.

Well, prices for parts isn't something I'd worry about. A box of
cookies plus shipping wwould be fine with me.... as soon as I
find the stuff. It would probably be better for you to tell me,
specifically, what it is you think you need. As far as software
and documentation goes, I don't have any -the reason I was
forced to dump mine. I tried (many ages ago) to decipher the
meaning/use of the dip switches at the back, but to no avail.
The problem with mine was that I tried putting a later version
of DOS on it, but the install pooped out, and since it ignored
the floppy on bootup, I was screwed. Even tried swapping
HD's etc. *NO* luck. They (I had two) were VERY picky
machines. Again, let me know what you need, I'll see if I still
have it laying around somewhere.

Well, I'd suggest you look at the back of the drive (or sometimes it's on
the top) and see if it's an 8200 or an 8500 (8200 is more likely).

The guy below has two IMSAI VDP-80's [parts from one of them are on E-Bay but probably won't sell, the better, complete one is not yet offered], a Newtronics ELF, and a SWTPC 6800. He just trashed a System 34 and a Burroughs L6000. If anyone wants the IMSAI, ELF or 6800, call him. You will have to buy the stuff, and pay shipping [the IMSAI is all but impossible to ship, it's best a "pick-up" job]. He's in New Orleans I think, but I'm not sure.

Personally I like to confuse people by placing a Hoover by my monitor and
hiding the PC tower under the desk. It looks almost exactly like one of the
Silicon Graphics M2's.

In a box I forgot about.. I have managed to acquire the following
Hewlett-Packard manuals for the 9000 series 200:
1. Shared Resource Management HP Series 200 Workstation Manual
2. Basic 3.0 Language Reference
3. " Programming Techniques
4. " Interfacing Techniques
5. " Graphics Techniques
6. " Utilities Library
Any interest? I don't want 'em.. got enough bokks around here
now that actually pertain to things I'm doing.. ;}
I've got the EXT-4000-series manual. I never owned one of the 4380's,
though I tested a number. Miniscribe built a model 9380 which was quite
similar, except that fewer than 10% of them would pass our tests. However,
I used the 9380's for quite a while in my personal systems.
There was once a military (air force, I believe) site called TheRef, which
had much of this data, if you haven't the patience for me to look up the
information you need. I recall there were quite a number of jumper
options. If you can find me the desired configuration, I can give you the
relevant jumpers and their effects.

One of the sub-goodies from the recent haul is a DEC CI-750
backplane in a 5-slot frame with three modules in it, though it is
marked for five.
3. L0118 * (placarded for L0100)
4. L0101 *
5. L0400 *
Where the * = occupied slot.
The backplane has absurdly large 5V power leads (2 ea #8) and
there are four coax cables coming from slot three backplane pins,
all with a side-mounted fan.
Also: The Nicolet scope is a 2090-III, and although there is a
small trace of some kind on the screen, it is sorta autistic. :(
Now to track down docs and fix it. O Goody!! Another Project!!
Cheers and Thanks for all the help...
