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.
