You can use the IMDU program (part of the ImageDisk package) to convert
those files to a vanilla sector image. From there, cpmtools is your
friend for extracting the files. IIRC, the BB used the same format as the
Xerox 820 machines and they'll probably already be a useable diskdef. If
not, it's fairly straightforward to write one.
