Hi Dwight,

I'll keep you and everyone else who has responded informed on whatever
material I am able to collect.

Btw, I've got scads of 8080 software that I wrote for my Altair which
could be easily ported to the H8 if anyone is interested - Including my
own disk operating system, BASIC interpreter and even a C compiler -
The OS was originally run on a NorthStar 10 sector hard sectored disk
system which is probably not that different from the Heathkit one.

I don't have a disk system for my H8 :-( .. if anyone knows of one or
comes across one, I'd like to hear about it.
