Sam, even with the IBM emulator board they are only marginally PC
compatible. Without, they run Wang programs only. I have a fairly full
set of disks for the machine. Of course, you may have some/much of it on
the hard disk.

I'm sorry that I didn't respond to Larry when he posted his query, but I
misread it that he was talking about one of the PC look-a-like
(compatible?) series that came along in the mid/late '80s.
