Much has been imaged and is over in  Software stride
and sage.

What it requires is a Real Computer(tm) with disk drives not one of the
latest octa-core Vunderkind M$ PCs.

An older box with a FD55GFV and one of the better 3.5" should handle all
but 8" and hard sector needs.
I keep a Dell 486 powered pizza box for that as it has all the 5.25 and
3.5 capability, for an OS winders3.11
is fine as its really DOS and moderately useful as it runs teledisk
still.   Also the smaller pentium box with
linux as its got that as well.   Either than or a CP/M-80 machine with a
bunch of drives, MY s100 crate
has that from 8 though 3.5.    A Qbus pdp-11 with the full compliment of
floppies from RX02, though
5.25 and 3.5" can do it as well.
