If this is the squarish box, it ran MP/M-II... let me check,
one we used to have where I worked ended up in the hands of
a local fellow collector (hey Russ B., do you know Chris at Nomad
Radio on Bardstown Road?).

I saw Chris at a party two weekends ago, he's *real* hard
to get hold of. But I'll see if I can, and see if Tom or
Crutch gave him the manuals and software...

Worst case, since MP/M-II is now freely downloadable,
source and all, you'd just have to re-port it to the 580...
