I've got the basic system files, including BASIC and some diagnostic

One of the disks I got is labeled "IBM Emulation". I don't know when I'll
get a chance to play with it but I'll take your word for it that it isn't
very "compatible". It is a very interesting machine. For one thing, it
is huge, being at least twice the size of a standard PC. The motherboard
is about 3 square feet (~24" x 18")! It has 512K on the motherboard and a
256K expansion card. The expansion cards are large as well, being about
12" x 8".
