As far as I know I do have an HP IEEE488 ISA Board lying around somewhere,
and I'l ltry to look at the stack of old Motherboards if I can find
something with a "higher" CPU and ISA Slots to build a Windoze computer
that can be connected to the 9121D Drive so that I can restore the
images to disks.


What about those LIF Utils (lifdump, lifimage)from Tony Duell (Tony??)?
Can I make disks for the data, maybe by reordering sectors and such?
I don't have a computer that natively runs some Linux currently, but
installing a Kinux souldn't be a big problem.

If I get your permission Glen, I'll upload the images to my pulblically
reachable dumpster of old data (www.tiffe.de/Robotron) so that anyone
can download them..
