Roland RA-800 questions
You can see that there is a coin battery, so far as I can see it is a CR2032
3V Lithium cell.
You can save yourself a ton of time doing that! I can't tell you how much time you can waste before a tech will finally admit he doesn't know the answer because he doesn't have the documents. Particularly for equipment made before PDF service documents, it's usually a toss-up if they have anything to do with arrangers available. No respect..!
mds - MIDI set
ups - prf
csq - chord sequencer
stl - user styles
uss - style sets
But I don't know what to do!!!! Which or all should I install? How?
I would appreciate it someone would walk me through the installation.

Your response was certainly appreciated. I do not want to violate any of the parameters established by this group. Unfortunately your suggestion echoes some of the Roland suggestions that fail to indicate how. Please, please tell me . . .
Please remember, we are not affiliated with Roland, and sadly, the RA800 is such a legacy product, it may be hard to find someone that still uses one or remembers what to do.
Bottom line about restoring your setups is, if it is years since you last did a floppy backup, you've lost all your data since the last backup. And floppies aren't a very robust storage medium, so cross your fingers that the machine will still read them!
