Both Option Board software versions are 5.4 according to the disk labels and
READ.ME files. The disks I uploaded a while ago contain version 5.5 of
MCP.EXE, compared with 5.4 for the version I just uploaded (see URL below). So
these earlier disks may not be of much interest.

Copy II PC 6.0 is a program for backing up copy-protected PC disks. Dated
1990, it probably doesn't handle protected high density disks (neither does
the Deluxe Option Board software). It might work better in conjunction with a
Deluxe Option Board card; I have not tested that. Anyway, I have uploaded disk
images of this too.

Instructions: download files and decompress using gzip. Use your favourite
disk-image-writing program to write the disk images to floppy disks. (For
