Re: CPM>DOS



Ted,

Did you look into 22disk?  Check out http://www.gaby.de/ecconver.htm
among others--there's a 'ton' of stuff on the net related to your
problem.  After just a few "Googles", it looks to me like you can do
what you want to do with just your disks and a PC with Dos, a 5.25
floppy, and the right software (e.g., 22disk ???)

Regards,

L Anderson
