Worse: X-Modem.  I tried Star Commander but I mustave mis-wired my X1541 ir
it's incompatible with my paralel card (first 'real' application I have tried
on the IBM clone I bought a couple months back).  So I X-Modemed it from the
64 to the Mac, Though it ould be file problems from the original disks...  :/

I'd be interested...  (=))  and I'd pay for it.  So are you saing it is plain
9660?  That would be fine, as I think no-frills in the CD format is good, just
in case someone makes a 64 CD reader.

I have some goodies to put on there...  About 30 disks of PET (some repeats...)

Some of the tidbits:
Anyone have a Regent Network?  I belive I have ver3 of the drivers?
Bunches of Educational stuff (hey alot of theis I got while in school!), not
all that bad...
Nice Game library (far from truly complete, but pretty decent for the PET).
HES Assembler
Wordpro 3+ w/ROM image.
Lots of Cursor stuff including complete copies of the first 12 tapes.
Theres a copy of MAE, but it may be a 64 version... 
PETSpeed for an 8000 unit (no ROM or Dongle, which I think is needed).

So what would be the preferred format I should send it, .d64 is big but it is
readable by most platforms...
