I have a System/One in running condition (last I checked) running Cromix
from the harddrive. I have two actually. One was exhibited at the first
VCF but because of all the moving the hard drive got crashed :(

To my knowledge, the other one is still running, but I haven't fired it up
in years.

Well, you don't count, Sellam; you've got at least two of everything.

If that System/One has the 5Mb IMI drive, as most of them did, those
drives had a very common problem with the index sensor moving, very
easy to adjust. If & when I send you that pile of books & manuals, I'll
include a copy of the relevant service bulletin, in case you feel like
looking at it some day. Gonna copy it right now and add it to the pile
before I forget.
