NOOOOOOO!!!!  That will make the drive do a 'non-relocating load' with
the directory starting at memory location 1025 ($0401) which is screen
memory on the 64.  The load address of $0401 is remenants of 4040/2031
code left in for use by people with PETs whose BASIC starts at $0401 and
cannot do any sort of relocating load.
use just:   LOAD"$",8
