Jarek, you will note that I have forwarded your e-mail to the listserv
for the Classic Computer mailing list. This is a group of people who
are very interested in a wide variety of older - over 10 years old -
computers af many kinds.

A number are interested in CP/M machines, and there was a recent
dialogue about a Spectravideo machine (whose model number I forget).
I think that there will be interest in your work.

Subject: New CP/M implementations


I found this address in CP/M-FAQ and I write because I have
implemented CP/M 2.2 for some Z80 computers.

1. SAM Coupe, produced since 1989 in England by Miles-Gordon
Technnology. Files are available on:
  - "CPM22QED.lha" the install disk,
  - "ZXVGSusr.lha" description how to install,
  - "CPM22007RAR.lha" - recent version of some system files.

2. TIMEX FDD 3000, produced about 1985 in Portugal by TIMEX.
This computer works with TIMEX COMPUTER 2048 and TIMEX
INTERFACE. The install disk isn't available via Internet.

3. SPECTRAVIDEO 738 X'PRESS, produced in Austria by Prosystem
(I'm not sure). This is kind of MSX. New versions not available
due to lack of interest. (But I can compile new on request.)

All above are compatibile. Have the same terminal (VT-52), the
same format program (QFORMAT) and XDPB utility (QMOUNT). Use
disks of 210, 410, 420, 820 and 1640kB - my own definitions. On
the disks there are additional sectors that allow boot "1." and
"2." from one disk.
