Unless you really like the challenge, there is no need to reinvent the wheel. 
Use the script, mb.floppy, on the appropriate 80d disk from
in the directory NITROS9/6X09L2/SCRIPTS.
You have not indicated whether you want a 6809 or 6309 image which is why there 
is an X above.

Change the entry that contains rel_80 to rel_40 and run the script. That will 
build the disk you want.
