I've bootstrapped the machine using the previous DOS 3.3 on the hard
drive, MODE.COM, and a serial cable so that I can get software on/off
the hard drive, but not having a functional floppy drive makes me
nervous. But there's no rush (it's functional enough) so whenever you
get around to it is fine. And thanks!
