Old Computer Systems
This is the story of my continuing attempt to bring to life the old computer
systems that I have saved from land fills everywhere. I find the older machines
far easier to understand and work on than the new ones - but I work on and use
the new ones as well.
This is an explaination of how I attempt to restore the old systems.
Restoration of old systems
This is a collection of Tools, Monitors, Drivers, Disk Images, Disassemblies,
and Documentation I have built or acquired over the years.

Intel Computer Systems
This covers the Intel OEM Single Board Computers which I have running the
CP/M-80 Operating System. These machines will not run ISIS-II. They are
Intel ISIS/MDS Systems
This covers the Intel Microcomputer Development Systems (MDS) Series I-III.
These machines all run the ISIS-II operating system. They are Multibus-I
S-100 Bus Systems
I began dealing with the S-100 Systems in 1978. I still have my first
S-100 System and it still operates.
IBM PC Systems
I began with the IBM PCs as soon as the first clone board (MPX-16)
came to market in 1982. I have fiddled with them off and on for
the last 35 years.
Software for the Old Systems
This page contains links to the old software that has been found and
runs on the CP/M-80 and ISIS-II Operating Systems. This includes the
Operating Systems and the user software.
