    Any Kaypro experts here?

    I'm in the process of installing a KayPLUS ROM in a Kaypro 10, in 
preparation for installing a new (larger) hard drive. My K10 has a 81-180 
series mainboard, but the sticker is missing from the factory ROM and I 
can't tell which one it is. It powers on to display version 1.9e. Assuming 
that this is an '83 version mainboard, the ROM should be 81-302. Can 
someone confirm which ROM version displays 1.9e?

    I've successfully burned a 2764 with the kplus83.rom image and made the 
hardware modifications described in the KayPLUS manual. However, 
absolutely nothing happens when I power up. Everything works fine when I 
replace the original ROM. I want to make sure I'm following the right 
instructions for my combination of mainboard and ROM.
