    DD4 is a CP/M program that allows you to image disks on the real machine
    on 2.2 or 3.x CP/M. Here is a sample run:

    I then ran an MD5 on the two disk images, and they were a perfect match.

    You can find the program @ http://cpm.dr.ea.ms/

    I'll be uploading images myself to the site very soon.
    Please let me know how well/poor it works for you so that improvements
    may be made.

    Andrew,
    COOL! Congratulations on your imaging program. I will download and
    test it on my NorthStar CP/M box.

    Thanks!

    Excellent! I hope it works for you. I'll be more than happy to host the
    images it makes as well.
