Everyone note Bill wrote the original post. 

For me an 820 would be another nice CP/M system addition.  From S100
based through
AmproLB+ and with disks ranging from  8", 5.25, and  3.5".  Once I got
the boot disk going
supporting software is easy as several of the CP/M systems Have hard
disks (AmproLB+, S100 box,
SB180, Visual1050) and I have my Walnut Creek CD.  HOwever ther eis also
Gaby's site and
a few others on line.
