That will be fine as long as you have no intention of acquiring actual floppy
drives for the Coco.
With your Disk ROM (Drivewire HDBDOS) in a ROM cartridge, you will be able to
access drives on the Drivewire server.
You will need to ensure that the command DRIVE ON is the default condition or
you will be trying to access non-existent floppies for drives 0-3.
