A2 Emulation/PC

1. Am not really sure here as to what your problems
are specifically.

2. No, an Apple IIe doesn't need a hard disk, but it
is a helpful addition for mass storage and launching
programs. The original Apple IIe's had 2 floppy drives
and a cassette tape interface on the main board.

3. Are you running an emulator board on your PC? What
kind of emulation software are you running on your PC?
Maybe others here can jump in and comment/offer help?

4. What, exactly, type of Apple II machine are you run-
ning? II, II+, IIe, //e (enhanced)? That, too will be of
use, I believe, when posing this question.

Hope we can help.
