Yes, this is the first step for me.  Last night I pulled out an MS-DOS 486
that seems capable. It can read/write single density according to TESTFDC.
This is the machine I'll use.

There will be a hiatus in the project while I get the connecting hardware
organised. Then we will see what we will see.  Hopefully the drive itself
works.  I don't know that for sure yet.

Thanks for all comments and advice.
