You might need to actually buy one since it may still be under copyright laws.

Doing some Google research apparently it is still under a Tandy/Microsoft copyright so it would appear although age wise a gray area, it is technically illegal to supply a copy if you do not own an original (though if you own a broken original or buy one than i'd say it would be technincally ok).
However apparently reading on if you own a ROM, you care allowed to copy that, though I don't know if ROM's are bootable as I don't know enough about the TRS computers.

Good luck anyway...

I believe LDOS has nothing to do with Tandy or Microsoft..

Fooled the Model4 Big time and now I have some working system discs in the correct format.


No longer needed
