Thanks a ton for all the good info! I think I recall a lot of software was
specific to the 1541 drive with regards to copy protection. Will this
software typically run on a 1571, and will the 1541 run on the 128 along
with a 1571?

Really? I thought it was shorter than the C64, and only a few inches deeper?
