The code is not OS-9 modules. You can put any code on track 34 of a
floppy and it will run when you type "DOS" in RSDOS. This code has
some screen initialization code and prints "DW3 BOOT" before it will
load track 34 of drive 0 on the DriveWire server. Now what is in that
track is probably OS-9 modules, but not necessarily...
