One of the early Compaq ones. 360K. Although while that board was
current, the PC-DOS format was 160K, followed by 320K. You can do 720K,
TWO drives. I thought that I remembered a version of it with a DC37 for
external drives, but I might have put in a 5150 board for that.
Has a real NEC 765 chip. It is unlikely to be able to do FM nor 128 byte
per sector MFM, and has a nice long blind spot after indes pulse (making
some complications with reading the first sector of track of some formats)
