"$" loads the file directory from the disk, and you use "list" to see
what files are on it. "*" loads the first program on the disk, and I
assume the ,1 is to either load an assembly program, or to automatically
run the file once loaded. The ,8 is the device number - thus try, say,
,9. :)

At least this is as far as my memory goes.
