Xerox 820

Hello all,

Recently I acquired a Xerox 820, but as a single board, w/ power supply. I
also received many docs (including a tech manual with Monitor listings and
schematics). I know originally these were "all-in-one" computers, but many
appear at ham fests in exactly the same shape as mine -- as a single board

Of course, hooking a terminal up to it produces nothing (even testing at
different baud rates/parity/stop bits, etc), so I'm wondering:

- Are there any modifications (ROM or jumpers) to "convert" this to use the
serial port for a console, rather than the keyboard and video display? I
couldn't find anything in my docs, but of course, I have not read them in
depth yet.

In return, I could offer copies of the docs, or thanks to 22NICE and my
Compaticard (thanks Don!), copies of the files on the diskettes (CP/M, "Word
Processor", "Diagnostics", "Training Files" and "Program Files"), or images
of the disks (assuming Teledisk could do it -- I haven't tried that yet).
The disks are 5.25", SSSD
