Osborne/Kaypro disk help needed

I snagged a very clean Osborne at the Junk Fest today but no disks. I
thought I could use 22disk on my Wintel box but then found out the Oz is
single density and this Wintel box won't write single-density. Okay, so I
can use MFDISK10 on my Kaypro 10 to generate a bootable Oz, disk right?
Well, MFDISK10 is missing in action. Hmm. So I found and downloaded
MFDISK10 from the 'net, put it on a Kaypro disk, ran the program, and got
as far as "use the arrow keys to move around," but the arrow keys do not
move the cursor, so I am unable to select a disk type from the menu. Hmm.
Broken arrow keys? So, I fired up WordStar and the arrow keys work fine in

So, I need help in either:

1 -- finding out why the arrow keys don't work in MFDISK10
2 -- getting some other program to run on my Kaypro which will create Oz
3 -- obtaining some Osborne disks (last choice)
