I know André Fachat wrote a basic program to create a disk dump of any
Commodore disk. It was posted to comp.sys.cbm and comp.binaries.cbm,
but I can't find it (does comp.binaries.cbm posts get archived some-
where?) You could modify the program to dump ten tracks (128k) at a
time to the second disk in your 8250, then transfer the slices via the
4040 and concatenate them.
