It is (128 bytes) too large, I bet if you trim it down to size it will work...
 I had to zero out the 26s that Xmodem padded it with to get it to mount on my
Power64, thought it would be ok on others...  Unfortunately I don't have a
file editor (YET) that will let me safely trim the data fork (on the mac
file).  (will search tonite.)  Thanks for the feedback!

(it's amazing such things we take for granted on the Commodore are sometime so
darned hard on the big machines!)

Marko, Let me make up a better disk for you, I wrote up the flash cable
diagram in a pet program that wasn't included, nor were some other great
games...  Note most of those games are probably for the 3000 series emulation mode.

.prg?  The VICE page didn't mention that! (This was originally for a person
who wanted to write about Flash Attack and wanted to do screenshots from
VICE).  I saw .c64, mentioned but unsupported in the docs (either in VICE or
Power64) I looked at.  :/
