No. You're missing the point. I was explaining how HDB-DOS for DriveWire 
could be downloaded into the CoCo's RAM. If you want to use DriveWire, 
you *will* need a serial cable, so why not use in the first place to 
load HDB-DOS?

If all you have is a cassette-recorder cable and are not willing to 
invest $10 into a serial cable ($3 if you build it), then your only 
option is to use some cassette-recorder simulating software... which I 
never bothered to mess with.
