I might be able to get away with just ORG'ing this code to the ROM
area and making a ROM image and SYS'ing it to bootstrap it.  It would
probably trash everything there is of BASIC, which is why I was
wondering if there was one that coexisted with basic as an add-on PROM
image or even one that replaced the existing BASIC interpreter with a
FORTH interpreter.  With the DOS smarts in the drive, you could gut a
lot out of the system ROM and make something compatible.

As of yet, I don't have anything that lets me transport data between
the CBM 8032 and my other PCs.  I'm going to have to rig up something
or its going to be painful! :-).
