While I'm not interested in the C= Plus/4 computer, I would like to let
everyone know that the Commodore 64's floppy disk drive, model 1541,
*WILL* work with the Plus/4. The reason is that ALL Commodore home
computers use the same serial bus architecture. Also note that 1571 and
1581 disk drives (normally associated with the Commodore 128) will also
work, as they are all backward compatible with the 1541.

Just wanted to let you folks know, in case you were looking for a disk
drive; now you know what to look for. :-)
