Unfortunately, no matter what I do, I cannot get pdisk.d64 to work it's

Ah, well, is it a 3040 disk? I guess no because truncating it to
    dd if=pdisk.d64 of=pdisk2.d64 bs=174848 count=1

With the Enterprise and R2D2 in it :-)

And when you run the PET graphics demo I really remember the times

Great stuff!
