[a personally sent email included a link to the site that said disk images
has been acquired from]
There is an interesting scenario regarding certain disk images that they
have been provided without a !BOOT file. For those unaware, the !BOOT file
that resides on a BBC floppy disk is run (according to Option 4 setting)
when you do the shift-break (F12 in BeebEm) maneuovre. Those, those disk
images with no !BOOT file wont work just by doing shift-break.
In those cases, you require a little detective work.
If (after loading the disc with File/Load Disc 0) (Master 128 / B+ADFS mode
people make sure you're in the right filing system) you then do:
You will get a list of files on the disk. There will (should) be one file
that stands out as obvious, e.g. if you have a disk image of Repton, the
file you'll be looking for will be "REPTON". You then put this filename into
a CHAIN (can be abbreviated to CH.) command, e.g. CH."REPTON" .
This should help you.
