procured a 128k Apple IIe, looking for some system disks for it so i can get it going.

would like Apple DOS 3.3, ProDOS 8, wouldn't mind a copy of GEOS for Apple....

and if anyone knows where i can get a fairly reasonably priced Serial port card for it, so i can use ADT :)

Just a heads up..
It's slower, but you CAN use the cassette interface for ADTPro.
Audio bootstrapping is on the the kualest things I've seen. IMHO.. ;-)

yeah that looks like it will do the trick, i wasnt aware of either the audio transfer or the fact you didnt need a 'dos' disk to work from, its literally been since high school since i used an Apple (1987ish), tho i had a 'c' for a while but never used it.

not 100% sure, but it would appear apple ii OSes are pd/abandonware at this stage anyways (i know GEOS for C64/128 was released to the public a few years ago, i assume the case is the same for the Apple version)

but yeah, thats awesome, basically uses the sound card of a pc to emulate a cassette drive, so really the computer just thinks you are loading from tape.
