Probably there is no such disk but I could be wrong. However, you have another 
way of creating such a disk without typing in the programs.

The http://www.colorcomputerarchive.com/coco/Documents/Manuals/Hardware/ has two 
entries that seem to be what you want.



The emulator MESS offers the possibility of pasting programs into Coco memory. 
The result is identical to you typing in such a program.
So, obtain a .pdf of the Disk Sytem manual, copy a program listing, paste it 
into MESS with Coco emulation running, and save the program to a .dsk image. You 
can run the programs from MESS, VCC, or mount the .dsk image in Drivewire and 
run the programs on a real Coco.

Hope the above helps.
