Or in my case:
   1. Fire up the A5000 [*] (I think I need to look at the keyboard, it
      is misbehaving, but then so is the harddisc...)
   2. Via Econet, log into the FileStore.
   3. Using the ethernet connection, pull the files from a PC using FTP
      and write them directly to the FS floppy.
   4. Turn on the Beeb, log in...

Best wishes,

   podule-based Econet interface, and I'm not sacrificing the ethernet...
