regarding Datamaster's and such

I've just been catching up on Classiccmp, and I found this discussion.

I'd never heard of a 5324 before either, but from the number I guessed 
it was a System/23 (my Datamaster is a 5322).

I have the 5322 service manual.  It's not particularly useful, but you 
may find it of benefit.  If you'd like it I'll try and scan it at work 
next week.

Yes, BASIC is in ROM.  Quite a big basic - I think there's about 128K of 
ROM in this beast!

IIRC you don't need a system disk.  But it fails power on diagnostics if 
the printer isn't plugged into it and switched on.
