    Why shouldn't that be done? 22DISK can handle 720 KB CP/M-86 diskette
    if, IF they are in the 720 KB format as created/prepared and supported by my
    144FEAT software. You just need the correct definition for 22DISK so that 22DISK
    will know how to handle such a diskette. Quoting the definition:

    NOTE
    NOTE This is the 22DISK definition for 3.5 inch,
    NOTE 720K diskettes as used by "The 1.44 MB Feature"
    NOTE for CP/M-86 for IBM and compatible PC's.
    NOTE
    NOTE This is for 22DISK version 1.40, September 1993.
    NOTE Be warned that 22DISK version 1.40 does not work
    NOTE under Windows, you should use DOS or MS-DOS mode.
    NOTE

    Yes. I was merely trying to save the guy some extra steps.
    Wasn't sure how technically adept he might be. :P
