Yes, it is there but alas most of items are missed. I haven't managed to get more infos even from the excellent "The DISTRIBUTION DVD".

Yes, there is a picture at least. Some more information needs to be added - maybe a scan of the manual.

What commands does it support for example - does it use FLP1_ for example?

Yes, flp1 to flp4 or anything else when renamed with flp_use.
It's a quite standard disk interface with the standard tk2 commands contained in rom ( subset dealing with file system but not level 2).
I may scan manual but it's only in Italian.
