ZCN is a CP/M-like operating system for the Amstrad NC100/NC150
(Notepad) and NC200 (Notebook). It can run most programs which run on
CP/M 2.2. You usually need a serial link to install it on a real NC,
and preferably a PCMCIA memory card (required on NC100).

The main changes in 1.4 are:

- NC150 support
- Internal ramdisk support on NC200/NC150 (memory card now optional)
- More keyboard layouts supported
- Preinstalled memory card images for emulators
- Floppy disk boot on NC200 (of a limited kind)
- Significant bugfixes, for NC200 mostly
- Various programs added/removed

Thanks. I don't use it a lot these days, but it was fun to mess about
with it again.
