Barry Nelson released a NitrOS9/RS-DOS VHD for use with the CoCoSDC. You
mount the image under SDC-DOS, then switch over to a special version of
HDB-DOS flashed to one of the banks on the SDC (e.g. run @3.) 

Then, NitrOS9 is launched normally with the 'DOS' command and has access
to all of that space.

If you search the list, you can find his messages talking about it.
