   I have one and I have both MS-DOS and CPM-86 for it. But one of the sets
of disks that I got don't work well in it (I don't remember which set is
flaky). Either the drives are slightly out of alignment or the drives that
the disks were written on were. I suspect that the disks are out of
alignment since they behave exactly the same in either drive. The machine
seems to work fine otherwise. The color demo program is cool.

  This machine was rescued from a group that collects and refurbs slightly
old PCs for various schools and chairities.
