	The problem is Plu-Perfect is a replacement bios.  You probably
had the version for the II.  The pro-8 rom requires a Kaypro IV BIOS to
work properly, I know, because I've been running the Pro 8 rom since it
came out.  It may or may not work with single sided disks with a II bios,
but certainly will not run with double sided disk drives and a kaypro II
bios.  The problem with your REMEX drives may well be that you were 
trying to run double sided drives with a bios set up for single sided drives.
	Find someone with a Kaypro IV and get them to sysgen a disk for you.
also get their "Kaypro IV" version of sysgen and, because
the "Kaypro II" versions of these utilities don't work properly on "IV"
	As for the Plu-Perfect stuff, you'll have to contact them about
getting the Kaypro IV version.

		Good Luck    Jim Garey  garey@ut-ngp
