[sebhc] CPM

I used to run ZCPR on my Godbout S100 system and still have the system
disks I built back then, though I haven't tried to boot them recently
(as in the last 20 years). However, by the time that I had ZCPR running,
I was already starting to run Multiuser Concurrent DOS with a 286
processor and never really got too involved with the Z-System. 

While I'd certainly like to see it on the H8* boxes, it's your call as
to whether you want to do the work - you can contact Jay Sage directly
at http://www.gaby.de/edownf.htm for further info on copyrights - my
impression is that he's released the entire system to the public domain.
Please let me know what you find out.

Maybe by the time you get an answer we'll have settled on a virtual disk
