Are these Z80 TRS-80 systems, or the 68000 systems? There actually were some
S-100 like systems (same connector, different board form factor) of the
model 16/6000 series. They were used in large (for the time) dialup systems.
I think they had 2+meg of ram and 2 or 3 four port serial cards. I have
never seen these, only heard about them. Some were even modified to run
68010 CPUs. There are instructions out there somewhere for this mod, but
no-one seems to have them readily available. They "lore" is that these
instructions were saved in the swap area of one of the install boot
diskettes. I was able to find and extract the games that were hidden there,
but never these instructions.
