CP/M-Live! is the self-booting CP/M. Try out CP/M absolutely free - no muss, no fuss, no installation. Simply place the CP/M-Live! disc into your favorite DOS-compatible computer, emulator or virtual machine and boot. In seconds (on any modern machine), you'll be presented with a CP/M system prompt. The rest is up to you.

Download

To download CP/M-Live!, click here. Note that until reliable DOS SATA CD-ROM drivers become available, the live-boot feature of CP/M-Live! only supports IDE CD-ROM drives. However, it may still be installed to and run from your hard drive. See below for installation instructions.

Intro

CP/M-Live! is *HUMONGOUS* CP/M's live-booting CP/M. It allows you to try out CP/M without installing anything. Simply insert the DVD into your DVD-ROM drive and reboot your system. The live-boot feature will by default boot the Z-System with ZS-DOS, a drop-in replacement for CP/M 2.2. For information on other available systems (e.g., Simeon Cran's ZPM3, an enhanced CP/M 3 replacement) and how to access them, see below.

Available Systems

Currently, CP/M-Live! comes with the following CP/M-compatible operating systems. To run one of these, boot the DVD, type EXIT at the CP/M prompt to shut down CP/M, then type "CPM system" where "system" is one of the names below.

NZCOM

This is the default system. Based on the ZCPR3 drop-in replacement command processor, the NZCOM Z-System provides many UNIX-like enhancements to CP/M. This Z-System configuration includes ZSDOS, with full time-and-date-stamping facilities.

ZPM3

Written by Simeon Cran, ZPM3 is a drop-in replacement for CP/M 3 which provides many enhancements and improvements while remaining fully compatible with CP/M 3.

Z3PLUS

Z3Plus is, in a nutshell, the Z-System for CP/M 3. To start Z3Plus, once you're at the CP/M prompt type "Z3PLUS{enter}".

QPM

MICROCode Consulting's formerly commercial CP/M 2.2-compatible operating system for 8080-based computers.

DOSPLUS

(Coming soon!) CB Falconer's DOSPlus 2.5.

MAXZ80

Not an operating system, but Lee Bradley's introduction to the NZCOM Z-System. The tutorial is available here.

ANYTHING-YOU-WANT

In addition, you can create a new CP/M machine simply by typing a name for it, e.g., CPM TESTSYS{enter}. CP/M-Live! will automatically create a new default system with the name you specified.

Information

For more information on how to use CP/M-Live!, or how to install it to your hard drive, click here.

Installation

"Installing" CP/M-Live is as simple as copying the contents of the /LIVE directory from the DVD to your hard drive. You may then run CP/M by invoking CPM.BAT, optionally followed by the name of one of the systems listed above.
