It is likely it only worked on some ROM versions. It is long enough ago
that I don't remember that. I do remember using it sometimes, though;
in our school's computer club we had 3 models 2001, of which the oldest
one, hardware-wise (with blue trim around the monitor and the tape
recorder without eject button) had "new ROMs".
