Hallo Mikael,

> Then do the disk stuff in that mode and return to z80 CP/M when done...

AFAIK that is the way how CP/M on a C128 accesses the drives. But I never
understood why. The only reason I could think of is that it simplyfies
programming by using existing code.

And even if CP/M used its own code, what would it matter. As long as you
send the right sequences of pulses towards a C= drive, it doesn't care
wether the origin is a 6510, Z80 or a 80x86. Just remember Star Commander.
