Yes, you can create a disk for the Coco from which you can LOADM the Drivewire 
ROM. However, it is not as simple as doing a CLOADM because you can't load 
something into the Disk ROM area without killing the load process.
You offset LOADM the ROM to say $3000, then LOADM a routine to move the ROM to 
$C000, and finally start the ROM.

I can send you a .dsk image with the required code if you know how to create a 
Coco floppy from the .dsk image.

Is your Yahoo address the correct address for sending the .dsk image?
