yea the BIOS in this thing is buggy as hell. I guess they never figured 
anyone would be messing around with it. I got Keils EMU to come up fine. I 
ran the Tandy COCO3 demo and Boink. It seems to run full speed but the 
display isn't active matrix so the screen blurrs badly. I'm wondering if 
theres a compatible active matrix screen that will work.
