DS/DD 96 TPI (or 100 TPI). Normal 360 KB diskettes are 48 TPI. Before I got 
some from Frank I used these but I encounterd problems so you're warned.

As Andre said, one was for the internal drive. Both can be used. The first one 
has device number one and the second suprise suprise.... two! (I think the one 
on the side is #1) The last one was discarded when C= decided to add a RS232 

About books etc. I'll make a list of all books/magasines/etc. I have concerning 
C=. But give me some time please. I'll also add a list of the ones our C= club 

Groetjes, Ruud
