The Kaypro II is a stupendously popular Z80-based machine originally coming out in 1982, with 64kB of RAM, two 200kB drives, a character cell 80x25 screen and a rather slow 2.5MHz processor.

Interestingly, it’s got a big bank-switched ROM containing all the BIOS functionality, so the BIOS itself just delegates to this. This made porting CP/Mish to it very easy.

What you get:

• everything: all the functionality of the original CP/M for the Kaypro II should work in CP/Mish. You can even use the same Kaypro configuration tools, or at least, I hope you can. (I haven’t tried.)

## How to use it

I’ve only ever used this on an emulator, but the disks should work on the real hardware — you’ll need to get them onto the appropriate 5.25” disks.

To run CP/Mish in the MESS emulator do this:

mess kayproii -flop1 kayproii.img


It should Just Work (although remember you will need to install the Kaypro II ROMs before the emulator will work).

## Who?

Everything here was written by me, David Given, and is covered under the terms of the whole CP/Mish project. See the documentation in the project root for more information.
