There apparently was work done in that vein by a small firm the bay area
using standard compupro boards. I scored a large S100 system about a
year ago from one of the engineers that worked on it - a Mr Gary Helbig.
Along with the hardware, I was handed 4 large boxes of docs and code
that supposedly contain the source code for a bootable MS-DOS C-Pro
system. Still sorting and scanning hardcopy but supposedly all the
code is in a set of 8" floppies that came with the system. It
apparently used the 8085/8088 dual cpu card and the CPro PCVideo card.
