No. It is however much more trivial to code a CP/M-80 emulator for

I have an original 2-disk set of Compupro CP/M-86 on 8"
disks. Unfortunately I don't have a 5.25" set, however is it
possible to configure a dual-drive type system and make
a 5.25" boot disk after booting from the 8"?
I would be interested in any Compupro CP/M-86 copies
you dig up, either 5.25" or 8" - I have a System with the
CPU 86/87, Disk-1A, Interfacer-4 and RAM - with the
boards configured exactly as described in the "how to
get going in 5mins" section, the system goes through all
the motions of booting (recalibrates to track-0, reads a
bit, steps to track-1, reads a bit and then seeks out to
the middle of the disk).
As far as I can tell, it is actually booting, however I do not
get any serial data activity on any of the Interfacer-4 ports.
I do note that the RS-232 control signals RTS/DTR do come
up at the point where the system steps out to track-1, so it
would appear that something is initializing the ports.
I haven't had a chance to look at it in detail yet, but I'd guess
that either I have a problem with the Interfacer-4, or the CP/M
disks that I have are configured for a non-default address (the
disks didn't come from the same source as the system). It

I am not able to use cpmtools with a floppy disk image file, which can
be used for VMWare or even VirtualBox.
I was using this command for showing all directory entries:
cpmls -f cpm86-144feat imagefile
But it does not show any useful info (instead just junk).
Is the existing diskdefs entry cpm86-144feat incorrect ?
# CP/M 86 on 1.44MB floppies
Or does the existing (and working) disk image files have a wrong
sector/track order ?
I am totally unsure, because I even wrote a small utility to split the
sector order to a different result:
I expected this sector order (C=Cylinder, H=Head) in VMWare/Virtualbox
C0H0 C0H1 C1H0 C1H1 C2H0 C2H1 ... up to C79H0, C79H1
The new result was
C0H0 C1H0 C2H0 C3H0 C4H0 C5H0 ... up to C78H1, C79H1
But this doesn't help to get a correct cpmls result.
Am I wrong and a skew is existing for CP/M-86 floppy disks ???

One of Edwins favorite trolls is to claim that no one should run a OS as an end

This has always amused me since the operating system very much sets the
standard for every application that runs atop it.
With Tiger, this has become very apparent.
OS X gives the user a system wide search that searches just about everything in
the computer. Any application can incorporate this into the application
OS X gives every application the ability to tap into Core Audio, Core Image and
OS X gives the user powerful tools such as Automator to enhance and simplify
the repetitive tasks one must do with other operating systems.
OS X ships with a built in dictionary and thesaurus.
OS X ships with a built in and system wide spell checker.
OS X has a .Mac frameworks which means that contacts, bookmarks, calendars can
be synced via .Mac with multiple computers, and third party applications can
use the same functionality.
OS X ships with H.264, which is a supreme video codec. Windows still can't
handle mpeg4 out of the box (unless some late WMP update has changed that).
And so on. These are all reasons why it's better to have OSX running under your
application than having Windows.

I have an old 286 (8mhz) IBM PC with 1mb ram and a 20mb HD that I would
like to use as a CP/M system. Can I run CP/M 86 on this? If so where

Hello! First post to this ng for me. I am a long time C= owner and have
dabbled with the 128's CP/M mode in the 80's, but as a kid back then I
had no exposure to any usable software for this mode. As an adult now I
am revisitng it a bit. I've also bought a decent Televideo system that
runs with the replacement HD I put in it, but crashes after it gets
warm. I suspect I need to replace dried out capacitors. What's nice
about the televideo is it came with the original manuals:-)

I have been loading CP/M on many different devices, from FPGA's to the emulators I wrote, and I see the Z80 as a good option of a core to embed on FPGA's and CP/M as a good option of system to act as infrastructure to microcontrollers.
But what else?
What other uses you guys see? What other applications are you running right now?
I just ask because I am willing to do some improvements to my Arduino and FPGA implementations.

My thought is perhaps a simple FPGA dev board could be used to recreate a

Even a '99 dollar special' should be large enough for a soft z80 and ram,
and many have enough built-in ports to get by ( like vga, parallel, ps/2 )

First, there is no such thing as an "Inform interpreter." Inform

I see that someone/someseveral is/are working to perfect DOSBox

more than an intellectual exercise or does it fill a real need?
> So is DOSBox more than an intellectual exercise or does it

All of the above! :-)
Users of OS/2 may have an excellent DOS compatibility. Nevertheless
some apps won't work, we may want to remain compatible with other
OS'es, and the state of DOS is frozen compared to modern pc's. For
example, OS/2 has no setting to override the free MB's of harddisk
space, while a DOS app may fail to install because it exceeds 1 GB
or a single data file exceeds 2 GB (*). Or you may want to set the
date to <Y2K without having to patch a lot of apps, and so on. I'm
not desperately waiting for DOSBox/2, but I can image there's a
need for it, albeit OS/2's DOS support isn't that bad compared to
other OS'es. And it may provide a few bells&whistles, e.g. AVI
capturing without having to resort to a working DOS TSR solution.
