I don't know. When I had my H67, I just know you had to put that 8"
floppy in the drive, and boot from it. PREP and PART came up with no
hint of what operating system they contained. And, this 8" floppy was
unreadable by either CP/M or HDOS.

are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily. - Thomas Szasz
