Acorn System software

Hi all,

Does anyone happen to have any disk or ROM images for the early Acorn System machines ?

Most interested in the 3 and the 5.

Cheers.

Phill.

I still have an Acorn System 5 which I used to use as a level 2 file server back in the 80s before upgrading to level 3 so I should have the ROM and the L2 fileserver software and maybe some disk utils somewhere...

From memory, the ROM was basically the same as the Atom DOS and NOS with some additional code for screen and keyboard handling but it didn't have any built in language and just gave you a CLI prompt at startup.

I'll have a look for them when I have some spare time.
