Required equipment for this would be a PC with Win98 with 5.25" drive  the 
Jeff Vavasour emulator (for DSKINI.EXE)
Also, WImgTool.exe (from MESS emulator) to put files onto the image.

Use WimgTool.exe to create a blank RSDOS or OS9 image, and then move the 
files you want from the CDROM to the image(s)
Use DSKINI.EXE in a DOS environment on Win98 to copy the image to a 5.25" 
Take that disk to the Coco, and Viola! you have the files on your coco.

If you have any further questions, please ask.
