Eh? I could have sworn that ED was on the disk, or at least somewhere in
the C128 distribution set. How many disks do you have?

The Commodore CP/M format is actually GCR -- the 1571 just can read MFM
formats as well, but it's natively GCR actually (so that the 1541 can be
used to boot C128 CP/M too).
