My first owned computer. My dad never thought I''d pass my high-school exams, so promised to buy me a computer if I did. And I did... what a great computer it was in 1985 with floppy. Only bought one KONAMI cartridge called Kings Valley, and then got into the whole game trading business with mates, of which I could squeeze a whole bunch of 16kb and 32kb games on a single sided 3.5" floppy with 360KB capacity. Was replaced by an Amiga 500 in 1988.

The SVI 738 was sold in Poland by Skadnica Harcerska and the price was 590 000 ZLP, about two times the average monthly income at the time. Many schools have had such machines. However, not much sofware were available and from my experience this is the only MSX known in Poland.
Machines sold in Poland had diacritical signs on keyboard (keys ACELNOSZ were replaced) and the character codes were equal to semigraphic codes generated with CODE/GRAPH keys.

If someone wants to read/write under LINUX the MSX-DOS floppies formatted by this machine, it's enough to use the device /dev/fd0u360:
# mount /dev/fd0u360 /mnt/floppy -t vfat
it's also nice to create an entry into /etc/fstab.
this works for me , though floppy disks formatted under linux
(command: fdformat /dev/fd0u360 ; mformat A , /note: i had to temporarily rename /dev/fd0 and replace it with a symbolic link to /dev/fd0u360 since I can't force mformat to open it-mformat always looks for /dev/fd0) cannot be read with the svi738 (and I still dont know why).
floppy disk geometry: 2 heads, 80 tracks, 9 sectors per track, 512 bytes per sector.
who needs images of the boot disks (cp/m 1.1, 2.2 && MSX DOS v.1) can drop me a couple of lines.
everyone who can correct me is sincerely welcome.
