If you heat the cart in the oven at a temperature less than that which will 
melt the case, but enough to melt the glue?

I have had considerable adventures with this combo of hardware, here is a 
link that spells out the steps I took to interface my C128 (in c64 mode) 
using MMC Replay and RR-Net with the second Ethernet card in a PC formatted 
with WinXT.  I can make a D64 image of a disk in less than 30 seconds.  I 
prefer the c128 because after each image, I get better performance if I 
restart the C128 using the reset button (rather than have to power cycle 
the c64).  I have a lot of the files you need on my web site, directions 
and links for the files you'll need are here:
