That's right.
Chuck's suggestion would require that somebody who has a 
flux-transition device (Catweasel, Kryoflux, Central Point Option board, 
etc.) would have to do the sector imaging.

Well, or, . . .
somebody who has an RX02 setup, such as you or Allison, could image the 
sectors, instead of copying the files,  which might be appropriate if it 
turns out that the OS that these were created with is unavailable.   How 
many operating systems use RX02?
