Gee, the only way is to get a rs232 interface or build somekind of net 
between the pc and 64. You can`t use starcomander as it only supports
the iec serial device diskdrives, and besides the 8250 uses a very strange
format storing 1mb on a doubel sidet DD 5 1/4.
Try Prlink thats quite good, and only needs a simple cable running from 
the parallel port to the userport.
