I looked through all the stuff I received with the Heathkit, adn I don't 
see any disk at all. Bummer. If you do have any disks for it Dave, it 
might be really helpful. I know it powers on; I tried it when it came to 
live here, but all I get is like E24 on the screen or something.

What does this thing run, anyway? Thge docs say it has separate Z80 
processors for controlling computing functions and terminal operations...
