SIO2PC is a hardware/software mod that connects your 8bit to your PC.
It allows you to store your Atari excecutables on the hard drive of your
PC and you can even boot your Atari from the PC's drive.
It doesn't allow you to write to an Atari DOS disk.  You can transfer
files with it from the PC to an Atari drive that is in the serial chain.
SIO2PC hooks your Atari to PC via the Atari serial port to the PC's serial
port, so your PC's hard drive is like drive #1 to your Atari.
For your PC to actually write to an Atari double density MYDOS format
diskette you need UTIL.  This is a good program that is available at the
archive at umich.  You need a drive on your Atari that formats in MYDOS
SS/DD or DS/DD in order to use it.  An 88k 810 will _not_ work because of
the type of drives that the PC uses is not compatible with that and cannot
emulate it.
