I have one copy of CDOS posted on my site but it is messed up.  I will be 
posting different CDOS files etc very soon (hopefully this weekend).

I have a few different CDOS's, application software (assembler, 2 different 
basics, etc), 2 different CROMIX OS's, and more.

The problem with Cromemco is the first track is formatted FM even on double 
density disks.  Many PC's can not write bootable Cromemco disks.

Dave Dunfield is working on some software that sends Cromemco disk images 
over a serial port to Cromemco's RDOS to create disks with any PC that has a 
serial port.
