So how do you get the volume number from a cpm image now?

But not for the volume number. To really do it right, that , along with the
sector address, would need to be carried separately for every sector. And
you'd still have to define these as part of a sector prefix, which exists
separate from the data, with a "tunnel" area in between.

It'd be interesting to see if a cat-weasel would properly identify and
recreate sector headers and tunnels on an hdos disk. :-)

Oops .. I was TOO quick. The makefile trick is nicer. I didn't think to
look in there!
I un-did that patch in favor of the other method.
