   Hey! Carefull there. That's the number for a HP 85 ROM. It wouldn't work
in your 87. AFIK all the HP 86 and 87 ROMs all have a 00087-xxxxx part number.

  I had one I'm not sure that it's still around. I'm pretty sure that I
still have the manual for it but it only has two commands and at least one
is the exact same as the standard 87 command except with the EMS ROM now
allows the command to work with CS-80 drives instead of only Amigo drives.
