Along this line I have solved one problem.  I mentioned INIT in
RSX180 printing gibberish on the screen when trying to init a
hard disk partition where it had worked on a floppy.  Problem
was the size of the partitions.  I had tried just making one
partition for the test I learned that FDISK will make partitions
too big for any of the P112 OSes.  I now have a hard disk with
5 partitions to play with.  On to the  next problem.
