> The cassette loader code is not HDB-DOS for DriveWire.  It is a small piece of code that requests track 34 from the DriveWire server and jumps to $2602 (exactly how the DOS command works).  This code is used to boot directly into a NitrOS-9 disk image.  It is not suitable for doing what you want to do (use Disk BASIC disk images).

If you could that would be really useful to me. I have a coco2 and a 
coco1 that could benefit from that.
I still have the disk based version of drivewire 2 that I can use on 
those. but I do prefer to avoid moving parts and physical disk drives on 
my coco machines as much as possible. The coco1 and coco2 I don't use as 
often as the coco3 so being able to
load HDB-DOS from cassette would be great. also it provides a way for 
anyone to test out drivewire and decide if they want to buy a ROM pak 
for it or not.
