First, happy Father’s Day to all the dads on the list. Great day expected here on Long Island so doing a lot in the yard.

Years ago when I got my IMSAI it didn’t have drives, so many may remember my implementation using 5.25” HD drives (and the subject of two VCF presentations). I have an 8” drive system that I use on my Gazelle (dual Shugart 850’s) so I thought I’d see if connecting them would work.

Indeed it does! I only had to modify the step rate parameter for the drives (4ms) in the monitor ROM and off it went. Today I’ll finish creating a “base” CP/M system disk — all it has is the system tracks. Then I need a good XMODEM program for CP/M so I can transfer files easier.

Enjoy all.
