Would perhaps be a good idea to upload to bitsavers.org ?

Cheers.

Download files from

OR

A 40 track bootable disk, it is 16 sectors. 

You need a 40 track drive (360k) on the PC to write the disk.  If you have a 1.2MByte drive you can do it but need to add the -d option and start from a new 5.25 inch 40 track disk - or use a bulk eraser.

You will need SAMDisk, available on the internet

then the commands are like

SAMdisk format -c40 -h2 -s16 -z1 -b1 -g54  b:
