Vincent, I have tested the PACMAN dsk from ColorComputerArchive.com and it
appears to work fine with the CoCo SDC.  No modifications are needed. Just
mount the PACMAN.DSK file in drive 0 and type DOS. The OS9 system will boot
and the game starts automatically.

It does appear that the game requires 512K RAM to run.  If you have only
128K then the auto-start program fails and you get the shell prompt instead.
