Interesting... On my list of fun ideas is porting some flavor of *NIX to
a CompuPro 32016-based system. I've got the CPU board stashed away,
and enough other CP/Viasyn parts to make a go of it, except perhaps mass
storage. I'd have to borrow the DISK3 from an 8/16 system, or puzzle out
one of the random "SCSI" cards I picked up along the way...
Finding a 1MB RAM24 would be tough, let alone more than one. I recall
seeing other large boards advertised in Micro Cornucopia in the late
80s, but haven't ever run across that generation (386 era) of S-100 gear
since or in person.
I might play along at home on a big RAM board project.
