That makes two of us then!

My intention is to tear the Oberon0.dsk file away from Oberon systems. At 
least THIS disk or file or image must be possible to be made by a cross 
compiler running on a Windows, Mac or Linux platform. And the image may be 
bigger than a 1.44 floppy image. Let's say, that the NO image must fit on 
an 80 mm CD-ROM.

So we need:

 - Oberon0 compilers written in another language (preferably Modula-2 or 
   Pascal) running on computers that do not run with the Oberon OS
 - all files that are now making up the Oberon0.dsk image
 - a general idea why these files are present
 - a general idea what new files are required for the current machines
 - some mechanism to create new Oberon0.dsk images
 - lots of nice and friendly programmers

As I told: I set up a separate mailinglist at Googlegroups. Anyone can send 
messages to the list at:

	NativeOberon at googlegroups.com

but messages from non-members are moderated. You can become a member by 
visiting http://groups.google.com/group/NativeOberon/ and then pressing 
'Join'. Or you can send me an E-mail and I will force you into a 
membership. In this latter case, you will not need to create a Google ID.

Met vriendelijke groeten
