It won't, but it would give you a PC that will work with real coco disks. You
could also download a Win98 or FreeDOS boot disk that would probably let your
current PC work with real coco disks, you just need a FAT (not NTFS) partition
that DOS can access.
While I agree that it would be great and totally conceivable to have a CoCo
program that creates a PC formatted disk, AFAIK nobody has done it.
