Sure. I can burn one for you. Just let me know what version you want etc.

Does your beeb have a disk controller?

Once you have confirmed that it has a disk interface, let me know what one (8271 or 1770 etc) it is and I will burn the required ROM.

You will need a DFS EPROM, so logic chips and a disk controller chip. You can buy the kit at http://www.beebshop.co.uk/#DiscKit
