I also have a tape-loadable version of the Rabbit, with a 2K payload that
gets installed at $7800 (there were different versions for 16K and 8K PETs,
but I never had those).

After years of trying to get replacement drive belts for my stack of C2N tape
drives, I have _finally_ gotten a working tape drive (off the free table at the
recent Vintage Computer Festival-Midwest) and have backed up my
Rabbit install tape and uploaded it to
*with* a readme.

I have not scanned the manual (yet) but I did upload with the binary
an ASCII copy of the manual which is accurate outside of any corrected
original typos.

I was also able to recover a couple of those tapes, the Chimera
and Hooptedoodle game sets and Creative Computing's "Conversational
Games" (ELIZA and such).  Additionally, I have a set of museum demo
programs (for 16K PETs) from a late 1970s travelling exhibit on Energy
and Energy Conservation (two versions of Hangman, "Driving for $$$"
and an energy quiz).  I have not yet uploaded these.

I was pretty happy to have 98% success reading 30-35-year-old tapes.

Now I just need to find which machine or parts drawer the 2532 with
ROM Rabbit ended up in.
