Did you ever try to connect your machine to one of the earlier
5,25"-amigo-drives (like the 82901 or the 9135A)? These drives should be
supported by your 3rd party ROM, and have the charme they should be able
to read disks produced by a standard 5,25" PC drive in combination with
the Teledisk utility from www.hpmuseum.net, where a couple of nice 98x5
software archives is provided as well. The transfer alternative is a
crude procedure decribed at the said site.
