Before I do this on my perfectly happy P500, has anyone put a 8088
co-processor on a P-500 before?  Any concerns?  I will probably run a fan
on the system and leave the lid loose as the daughter card may sit too high
to close the lid.  I will attempt to boot MS DOS and CP/M 86, but there are
no known color and SID tests what would I expect to gain from putting the
8088 on a P500 vs. the risks?

Given this is a rare combo of hardware, please send me any tests you wish
to have done, I can make D80 images from PRG files if anyone wants to whip
up experiemental programs.  It would be great if I can get my uIEC to work
on the P500 as I did for my B128 and I will try that.

I don't recall there being a BASIC that runs off the 8088 that also uses
color, but I guess that's the whole point of the original thread that
sparked interest in the P500 to begin with.
