Let's start with determining the hardware aspects to see whether Terry's 
machines are capable of reading the disks.

Deciphering the file system structures can come after we know whether it 
is going to be possible.

UCSD p-system, for example, is trivially easy to do IFF it is a hardware 
compatible recording system.
