I guess I'm like you. I have a Olivetti M20 and wanted
to get the CPM-8000 running on it. The original memory
cards had 16K DRAMs that gave the system 224K. To run
CPM-8000 I needed to have 64K DRAMs. It required that I
unsolder the DRAMs, some capacitors and cut a power line
to configure for the larger DRAMs.
While I would have prefered to get the larger memory
boards from the manufacture, this was not all that practical.
I felt that getting working images of the CPM-8000 was
A computer that doesn't work is an interesting pile of
hazardous waste. One that works is a window into what was.
