I picked up what I thought was a PET 2001 at a local flea market today. Now that I'm home I realize that it's a PET 200, aka 8032-SK, with a dual 8050 disk drive and an 8023P printer, complete with all cables and in perfect working condition. This is great :) A few questions that some of you may be able to answer: What kind of disks should I use in the 8050? Are normal 5.25" 48 TPI DSDD disks OK? It formatted them OK but I haven't done any real testing. With it came manuals for the disk drive, the printer and BASIC 4.0, but no documentation for the main unit (you know, the "plug in that cable there" manual :). Is that manual missing? Which chip is used for generating the display? 6545? I couldn't find one on the motherboard, but I didn't look very hard. There was a hitachi IC called HD46505 -- could this be it? Whas there ever a PET Programmers Reference Guide? If so, does anyone on the list have a copy of it? There appears to be two casette interfaces -- is this the case? Hardly useful, is it? More to come... -- ___ . + . . . Per Olofsson ._|___|_, . . . . . + . . o o-o + . + MagerValp@Goth.Org . . + + + . - . . . o + . . . " + + . http://www.cling.gu.se/~cl3polof/
