That does sound the simple way to do it, although I bet there's a 
utility around to properly test it.

Something like this maybe for the moment (grab yourself a rom image from 
somewhere that you know will work from SR)

*SRLOAD <filename> 8000 X Q

Replacing X with the bank ID

Then CTRL+BREAK , *INSERT if needed etc

I suppose you could then Save it back to disc and see what state it is 
in etc.

Andy. :)
