	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 config.com, because
the "Kaypro II" versions of these utilities don't work properly on "IV"
disks.
	As for the Plu-Perfect stuff, you'll have to contact them about
getting the Kaypro IV version.
