It wouldn't be a new CocoPi3 release without a couple of minor bugs. Thanks
to the few folks that contacted me about the issues.

Bug #1
Please run option #22 from the Utilities Menu prior to launching any
emulators (only need to do this once).

Bug #2
The 'downloadNitrOS9EOU.sh' script needs to be edited. Change line 33 of
the file from:

unzip -o "/media/share1/EMU/EOU/NitrOS9-EOU-6309_LATEST.zip"

to this:

unzip -o "/media/share1/EMU/EOU/NitrOS9-EOU-6309-LATEST.zip"

I can provide an updated copy of the script that can be copied over the
original one as well.

Apologies for these issues!
