Hi Bill, I recently got a 9090, according to the source with a substituted disk (225 I think - I didn't have a look into it so far, waiting for the holidays...) There are any special changes necessary to substitute the tandon? I assumed they are both "ST506" type disks and should be directly substitutable - but I may be wrong, after all even the Shugart (PC-) bus floppies used by Commodore are not according to the standard...
