My $.02
Aw, lets be careful about that. I like the convenience of the SD card 
file systems
and they have their place, but working disk drives are important to the 
demoing history.
This was clear to me at NY Maker, and also was commented to me by
several individuals at VCFE.  If we can't keep disk drives going, we 
might as well
admit failure on the whole restoration scene.

BTW: I think the IBM PC boot drive is bad too or the DOS floppy in the 
drive is bad.
It boots right into ROM basic.
