Any update on the 'Altos stuff' that some of us are working on? You mentioned awhile back that you might have Altos 586 system diskettes. I noticed another 586 on eBay last week, but not with anything but the box. I am in correspondence with a few other people struggling to image/restore-from-image some of the Altos 586 images now newly in circulation.
