Hello to all Heath/Zenith users out there!

I'm a german homecomputer collector and i have a similar problem.
My Z90 has the DD Softsector controller with one 5.25" drive and
of course 64k of RAM.

Too bad, my set of the CP/M distribution disks is faulty
and the Z90 reports only "boot error".

I looked on the Bootdisk with "Anadisk" on a DOS machine and indeed
there are a couple of errors on the system-tracks.

So if there is somebody, who can take a discimage of a softsectored
5.25" disc it would be nice if this image is uploaded to the archive.

There are already some images, but they are all of hardsectored discs!

An old DOS machine (286/386/486) with an disc-controller capable of
reading single-density in conjunction with a 40 track 5.25" drive
is a really good tool for backing up old disks.
Oh! I forgot the software: Anadisk or ImageDisk are great pieces of
software if you would like to produce disk-images (softsectored).
