 Hi Dave
 The only issue with headers ( other than exact replica of
the interleaving ) is the volume number. As you know, HDOS
places this number in a convenient place on track 0 so that
isn't an issue. My transfer program is HDOS friendly and
will look at this info as a default.
 At least to this point, all of the CP/M disk seem to work
with the volume number set to 0. I'll know more when I get
a chance to download a bunch of the images that Dan has posted.
 For those using my transfer program, ( you should of course read
this in my documents ) it allows you to set the volume number.
To my knowledge at this point, the volume number for the
CP/M disk should be 0. Like I said, I'll be checking this
out and let those know if I find anything different.
