That would work - but I'm surprised there isn't some magic BASIC one-liner
that'll just pull the data off the disk via ADFS and splurge it out to the
screen. If there is intact PANOS data on there then it'll need a raw transfer
of the whole drive to modern hardware *somehow* for dissection anyway, so it's
a case of whatever's quickest at this stage just to verify that there's even
