Looks like I followed Dave over from VCFED.  :)  I never even knew there was a Cromemco group.  Till someone mentioned it on VCFED.  I no longer have any Cromemco gear.  I had a Z2-D long ago and now wish I still had it.  But I enjoy following along as others work on their Cromemco stuff.  So I'll just hang in the background here most of the time.  If I have something helpful to offer I will gladly post it.  Glad to be here.

Welcome Tim!!!

I have two Cromemco System One chassis -- one is rigged up for CDOS/CPM 2.2 with ZPU, 16FDC, and a 512KZ (I can add a TUART when I need extra serial lines).  I think I can also run Z80 Cromix, but don't quote me on that!  It uses the IDE/CF card from the S100computers group, so CP/M has sixteen 8 MB "drives".  It boots into ITC CP/M from 5.25" HD the floppy drive (there are 3, but one is dying!), but then I run a little chunk of code I wrote to switch over to the compact flash card.  Right now, I have no access to the floppies from the system on compact flash.  I do all my file transfer via XMODEM.

The second System One is rigged up for Cromix with an XPU, 32FDC, and two 512KZs.  I'm limited to what I can do here because I have no hard drive ... just four 5.25" HD floppy drives.  Also do not have much in the way of application software.  Just SBASIC(?) (I think that's right).
