I already have it installed. It is the idea of playing with the CP/M
system again, and maybe moving some of the software to my Linux
system that is tempting. Then again, I should probably archive all
the 5-1/4" floppies while I still have a drive that reads them. I
have so 5-1/4" 96tpi double-density drives and floppies. I guess I
could teach Linux to read the floppies in a 5-1/4" high-density
drive. (Data rate of a 360K floppy but the track spacing of a 1.2M
floppy - the same format as a 720k 3-1/2" floppy.)
