PLEASE NOTE: The software on this web site comes with absolutely
no guarantees of any kind whatsoever.
If you download or use any of this software, you do so entirely at
your own risk and peril.

This software is designed for use with 'CP/M-86 For The IBM, Version 1.1.'
Much of it will NOT function correctly under other permutations of CP/M-86.



Check out some useful DOS files related to CP/M-86 here.


  STANDBY2.ZIP (3.7k) - Puts your computer into a 'Standby'
    condition from the CP/M-86 command line. Shuts off the
    monitor, and puts the CPU into 'idle' mode. Pressing any
    key brings the system back to life again. Saves power,
    yet keeps the system ready for instant use without the
    need for a total shutdown or a 'cold boot.' Requires
    Advanced Power Management version 1.1 or higher.

  FASTBROT.ZIP (16k) - A fast Mandelbrot generator. Uses an array
    to hold the Mandelbrot data, for speedy screen generation.
    Includes Turbo Pascal source code.

    a custom CP/M-86 header for the assembled .BIN file.  Since
    NASM is a 32-bit assembler, this package opens the door for

   (February, 2002)

  An addition to Freek Heite's 'CVV' software package.  When used
  in conjunction with CVV (below), CVVMKBO enables your system to
  boot 'CP/M-86 For The IBM, Version 1.1' from the first volume
  of a CVV partition on your first hard disk.  CVVMKBO automatic-
  ally loads the necessary driver for all CVV partitions on your
  system's hard disks, and ALSO loads a driver to support a 1.44
  MB floppy disk drive (the same driver contained in the '144FEAT2'
  package, listed below).  Also included are CP/M-86 and DOS-
  executable versions of 'SETBOOT,' a convenient way to change the
  active partition on your hard disk if you don't have a boot
  manager program installed.

  CVVMKBO plus CVV (below), brings 'CP/M-86 For The IBM, Version
  1.1' totally up to date, and allows it to boot and run effort-
  lessly from the huge, multi-gigabyte hard disks in today's
  leading-edge IBM-compatible computers.  Yet another incredible
  software accomplishment from Freek Heite.

  Download CVVMKBO.ZIP (21k)

   (July, 2001)

  CVV enables 'CP/M-86 For The IBM' to recognize, and use, up
  to 120 megabytes of hard disk drive space.  It works by sub-
  dividing a large hard disk partition into 'virtual volumes'
  of 8 megs each.  Up to 15 virtual volumes can be created.
  If your system has two separate hard disks, both of them can
  be used to hold CVV 'virtual volumes,' if you wish.  CVV even
  handles the huge, multi-gigabyte hard drives that HDMAINT.CMD
  can't touch!  Virtual volumes can also co-exist with a normal
  8 meg CP/M-86 partition created by HDMAINT.

  The CVV package includes partition preparation software, plus
  a memory-resident CP/M-86 device driver (a 'FIDD') which makes
  all this possible.  Comprehensive instructions are included,
  along with complete MASM source code.  Another history-making
  technical breakthrough from Freek Heite.

  Download CVV.ZIP (72k)

   (November, 2000)

  Version 2.0 of Freek Heite's brilliant memory-resident floppy
  disk driver (a 'FIDD').  Enables 'CP/M-86 For The IBM, Version
  1.1' to use regular IBM-style high capacity floppy drives:
  1.44 meg, 1.2 meg, and 720k.  An ideal answer for those wanting
  more CP/M-86 floppy disk capacity, or for those who don't have
  a 5.25-inch, 360k floppy drive installed in their computer.
  No 'patching' of CP/M-86 is required.  Complete documentation
  and MASM source code are included.

   (October, 2000)

  Extended memory -- previously a wasted commodity under 'CP/M-86
  For The IBM, Version 1.1' -- can now be put to productive use.
  XRD is a device driver (a 'FIDD') which enables you to create
  a RAMdisk, from 1 to 8 megabytes in size, in EXTENDED memory.
  XRD can also be used to create =multiple= extended-memory RAM
  disks, up to a total of 15 MB.  Complete documentation and
  source code are included.  Hardware requirements: 286 or higher,
  with at least 2 megs of memory installed.  Another amazing soft-
  ware achievement from Freek Heite.
