The disk image contains a 16500A SYSTEM_ file and two option files (similar
to the way the E2450A Symbol Utility loads), one option file for Breakout
and another for Missile Command. The SYSTEM_ file is the same size as a
v01.00 version I have on a standard 16500A system disk but does not
completely binary compare. I didn't try swapping the SYSTEM_ version to see
if a standard version still works with the game options on a 16500A.

I tried copying the option files to the System directory on a 16500C but
the game options aren't loaded on boot as they are on a 16500A. I expect it
wouldn't work on a 16500B either but haven't bothered trying that yet.
