[Coco] [Color Computer] How to Convert to MESS readable DSK files?

Hi everyone. Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted here... 
some of you may remember me from bit.listserv.coco days.

Anyway, I finally went ahead and downloaded the MESS emulator, which 
seems to do a pretty good job with the CoCo.

ONE BIG QUESTION THOUGH: How do I make MESS-readable ".DSK" files 
(NOT CoCo DSK files, but MESS DSK files) out of the various softwares 
that I have?

For instance, years ago I transferred tons of BAS, BIN, and CoCo DSK 
files to a CD-ROM... (not to mention many are available for download 
thanks to their authors authorizing their release).

But I can't figure out any way to "convert" them to MESS-DSK files, 
so that MESS will be able to read them.

There were a few ready-made MESS-DSK files I downloaded off the net, 
and I was able to run some old programs just fine this way.. but I 
want to be able to take my OWN software and convert it to a MESS DSK 
file so I can run all my old softwares on the emulator.

I'm sure this has been discussed before, please forgive me if this is 
a repeat. If you like, you can email me as well:
COCOLAR2 "at" YAHOO "dot" COM.

ANY help would be appriciated.

And for anyone interested, I still have a webpage up with (among 
other things) a big section on the CoCo, the FM-7 (Japanese 
CoCo "clone"), and other machines:
