It's very hard to give you good advice without knowing a bit more about what your interests are and what you plan to do with your 71B, and to a lesser extent, what type it is.

Are you interested primarily in math and number-crunching, or using HP-IL and peripherals, or doing FORTH or Assembler programming, etc. There are literally thousands of files available, but which ones are relevant and important enough to promote to your EPROM selections depends on what you do.

Here's an example - if your 71B has ROM 1BBBB, you should definitely include the SHOWPORT LEX file, as it adds important extensions to the built-in command, but in the 2CCCC and 2CDCC ROMs, these extensions are built-in, so adding the LEX file is a waste.

Tell us more and we can give you more and better advice.

Thanks, I have 2CDCC on both of my 71Bs. My interest lies in Forth/Assembler/Math, in that order. I have a Pil-Box which I use a lot, and an HP-IL Thinkjet which I haven't used yet (in a nice custom suitcase...)
