I found it on some university's ftp site.

The company refused to give me a copy, offering instead to sell it to me
for several hundred $$$, even after I explained the HDS unit cost me $5.

IMHO... that's justified.  

I've shelved my unit because I just couldn't see using it much,
though I plan on keeping it just in case it comes in handy.

Of course, it is only 10Mbit ethernet, and 8-bit color.  I'd be better
off with a notebook PC with fast ethernet or better, and decent color
and performance.

It would cost less than a legal (contractually speaking) copy of HDS
