I have a 4951A, 4951B and 4952C.  I have some software on TU-58-like
tapes (for the 4951A ad 4951B), but no idea if a TU58 can be used to
archive them.  I have no 4952 software, but would love to have the terminal
emulator package for it.

I won't have access to my HP serial analyzers until December, but if it's
possible to back up what I have, I think it should be saved and/or shared.

If anyone knows how to generate 4952C diskettes, I'd love to hear about it.
My understanding is that you can back up original software with the real
hardware, but there's some form of simplistic DRM that prevents "sharing"
application disks.
