Thanks for the hints. here's my latest analysis of what's going on
after trying numerous times. At the time zigzag starts up,
it asks if you want to load a previous data file. If you say no,
you get an empty zigzag with the definitions that I mentioned earlier,
but no data. If, however, you say YES, it looks on the disk for the
data file. By trying numerous times and watching closely, I noticed
that there is an error message that flashes by extremely quickly.
It is complaining about a non-DOS format disk (which, of course, makes
sense since the floppy contains a Linux file system, not a DOS one.
After the error message, it defaults to the empty zigzag with no data file.
So now here's my dilemma. zigzag is expecting the A: drive to be DOS
but I have no DOS zigzag data file. The datafile is on my zigzag
demo boot disk, but in Linux file format, so either way,
I can't get the datafile loaded.
