Thanks for sharing! Those images will probably be quite helpful to many folks trying to resurrect vintage Compupro hardware, myself included.
One of the links appears to be bad: The filename is "MPM2.1ED", but clicking it just leads to the site index page.
I hope you won't hate me for a mild (?) threadjack: I'm looking for either version 2.2R or version 2.2S of the Compupro CPM-80 Master Distribution Disk. I've been told by an experienced Compupro guy that those are the versions I'll want to operate the S-100 system I'm building in interrupt mode rather than polled I/O mode under CP/M-80. All of the images I've found online so far are for earlier versions of Compupro CP/M-80, which I'm told will work in polled mode but lack the interrupt mode support. But what do I know? I'm new to this stuff!
The same fellow tells me that Mr. Godbout has never authorized online copying of the Compupro software as some other out-of-print computer manufacturers have, and has been known to express strong disagreement with the practice. To which I naturally reply that I would be quite happy to buy a new copy of Compupro CP/M-80 2.2R/2.2S at full retail list price from the legitimate rights holder rather than downloading an image.
