Located in Vero Beach Florida.

I was able to boot an old toshiba utility disk i had laying around
that is 720K. I have tried to make a couple of dos boot disks but have
not had any luck getting it booted. it appears to be functional, but i
need to get a proper boot disk made before i send it off. Pictures to
follow soon. I am taking the machine apart to take inventory and find
out the model numbers on the drives.
