[Coco] A couple of questions

Actually it's more then a couple. :-) They should be easy to the people
here though. The first is how can I create dsk images on my linux box.
I ave a number of files that I'd like to transfer from linux to my coco
but I need to be able to put them in a dsk image to transfer them. (At least
I think so)

Next I was wondering if anyone knew of a basic interpreter for nitros. I thought
I saw a reference to a basic9 but I haven't actually found a binary for it.
A URL to a dsk image would be greatly appreciated.

Finally I got a 502 floppy and controller in an Ebay auction and I can't access the
drive. Before anyone starts someone was selling their coco3 gear and the description
mentioned that the drive didn't work. I wanted the monitor!! I'm wondering if there's
a way to tell if the problem is with the controller or drive and how I can tell.
In any case ard either of them worth fixing. If so where?
