Thanks for the info (!) and I am in Santa Barbara. I have several 16-64K
motherboards including (I think) one actually installed in the IBM PC. I
have at least one of the black IBM Power Supplies, and was wondering where
they fit in the general scheme of the PC; sounds like they were one of the
first releases.

I've been curious for many years but haven't received any info; did IBM ever
release a cassette with the IBM name on it?

This thread is the first I've heard of anyone actually having PC-DOS 1.0,
and just goes to show there are a lot of knowledgeable people here!
