Does the disk system include a boot disk?   Minus a few hundred, if not!

What documentation comes with it?
Some manuals, such as Digital Research CP/M manuals add only a little.
But any original ProcTology (not the official nickname) manuals are to be 
prized.  I've heard that a lot of that is now available online.

NO idea about price(s).

My first Apple2 was a home lashup where somebody put an Apple motherboard 
into a Sol case, with an RCA membrane keyboard connected by a cable 
hanging out the front.  He sold it to me for $150 when he finally got a 
"REAL" Apple2 in a REAL Apple case.   WHY did I give that away?

Later, I was given a Sol-20, without disk drive.  After it had been 
hanging around for years, I loaned it to a colleague, for him to try to 
get his going.  But then, the college tried to FIRE him for, among other 
things, retrieving computers from college dumpsters and having too much 
old computer stuff.  The judge of the arbitration reversed the firing, but 
the college had already dumpstered ALL of "that junk" from his office.
