You've missed my point.

  It installs a standard Coco 3 with 6809 CPU, 128k of memory, no MPI, 
no carts and starts up in SECB just like the Coco 3 you would've bought 
from Radio Shack.

Yes,VCC always did this.

You sure about that?

The only thing that even pertains to OS9 is the preset versions of 
hdbdos which are included, but not mounted (as you have seen) and 
explained thoroughly in the Vcc manual and the ONLY reason they were 
included was due to Nick's very own compaints (on FB) that he didn't 
know what HDBDOS rom should be used for what.

I can't recall those "complaints" but whatever, you know best.

I was just thinking of the newbies and novices who may not know what 
Drivewire, Becker Ports, HDBDOS and VHD's are.
(Teaches me to make suggestions doesn't it?!)    :)
