A quick solution to my own mess..
I used Jeff's "GET3ROM.BAS" and ran it within MESS.. which dumped a copy of
the coco3 rom and disk basic to a virtual coco disk
Using the "port" utility that came with Jeff's Coco3 emulator, I transferred
both COCO3.ROM and DISK.ROM to my pc hard disk as data files (an initial run
where 'port' thought the files were ASCII and I didn't notice obviously
ended badly.. make sure all conversions are 'off!')
Now Jeff's Coco3 emulator boots and runs wonderfully!
Now I just need to get either OS-9 running, or disk edtasm :)
