You'll want to ensure you get the correct ones. There are at least two
different versions one for 40 columns, and another for 80 columns. I'm
pretty sure that the 40 column systems can't be booted with 80 column
disks. BTW I'm refering to the number of columns on the display.

I've got a old 40 column system, but as far as I can tell the boot floppy
and one or two others are bad. I say this because I was able to read at
least one of them with my Commodore 128 running CP/M. I couldn't read the
boot disk.
