Hi Dan
 The Z80 board didn't require the enhanced board. The older
8080 machines required the extra board. I'm not
sure if the CP/M boots to both the H8-4 and H8-5 boards. 
I'll try to check this out. I most likely won't get to
it before the weekend. I have both boards so I can try it.
HDOS will boot to either board.
