So, I don't know how your self implementations are doing, I just
managed to speak to a representive of Olympia, and he at least
could remember the System. Always a good sign if a company is
responding ;) He didn't have any information or systems at access,
but I now have a contact to their Repairs and Spare Part Centre.
As for now they are bussy with the usual years end stuff, but I
get more about that next Monday. They belive that they still have
this sort of OS disks in stock, so you may have to pay their price
(which I don't know of right now).
