Hi Sellam,

   Well, I'm pinging out to a bunch of former Atari programmers in hopes
that someone may have taken some diskettes home that might have the needed
software. From what I've been told, many of these Z-2's were hooked up to
the various VAX's at Atari and serially loaded utilities and programs
to/from the Vax's that way, but some people did backup locally to disk
drives connected to the systems. In the meantime I'd just like to get some
core functionality going on this Z-2 just to understand it better and to
play around with it as well.
