Generally speaking Qbus is very robust and the design rules are not
easily broken nor the bus. Standard devices like LS244 and LS245s
work quite fine from expereince. Stick with 74LS or 74L if you have
them or can find them. CMOS in the 74HC, HCT and friends
however are a bad choice for interfacing the bus, though they may be
acceptable in down stream logic.

Remember the bus is terminated to avoid pain.
