I believe some people in the user's group did that.
I had an external 5.25-inch floppy as drive c: so I could read 
disks written by 22-disk on my old pc.  Only worked under cp/m 
or zcpr3 though, xtaldos couldn't handle it.

While digging out some 3.5-inch floppies yesterday I came across
my collection of 3-inch disks, a mixture of Eintein and Amstrad 
format ones, including CP/M 2.2, CP/M+, Pascal and Forth...perhaps
I should offer them for 500 quid to whoever purchases the Eintein :-)
