          The Welcome disc for the original 1987 Archimedes machines, running
          the Arthur operating system. The entry level A305 (512KB RAM)
          model and the A310 (1MB RAM) had no hard drive. The A440 had
          a 20MB unit. 'Second generation' systems, called
          A420/1 and A440/1, had 20MB and 40MB respectively.

          There is also a disc image of this disc; it's an 800KB floppy.
          Emulators should know what it is.

RISC OS 2

          machines from 1989, and as an upgrade to older

UniBoot/SmallUni.zip         
UniBoot/SmalUni2.zip
          Universal Boot. This is the Last Release of
          the RISC OS 3 boot structure. I've chopped it into two bits, called
          SmallUni.zip and SmalUni2.zip, so it should fit on 1.44MB floppy.
          This ought to make transfer to older machines easier. The Licence
          and notes from RISCOS Ltd are also included .Please read the
          UniBoot/Read1st.txt before proceeding
