I know. I have a couple dead Z-100s, and that's where the WD chips in
the Z89-37 I built came from. Forgive me father, for I have sinned.

But your comments sparked a (mad?) idea. The S-100 size Z-100 card is
physically small enough to fit in the H8. Do you suppose it might be
possible to build an H8-to-S100 adapter? Could a Z-100's floppy card be
used pretty much as-is in an H8 to provide soft-sector support?
