Can anyone read a 360K 5.25" NON-IBM floppy for me?

I've got a few (meaning, one or two) old floppies of mine that
I found, and hope are still readable, one with the sole copy
I know of of an 8086 ROM monitor debugger I used to bring up
a lot of machines with.

It's stored on a 360K 9-sector/track standard-formatted MSDOS
diskette with the right fatID and all that, but it does NOT
contain the IBM formatted crap in the boot sector that many
PCDOS implementations require.

Meaning, it will read fine (assuming it's still good) on MSDOS
but probably not PCDOS. (On PCDOS diskettes like this generate
something like "unformatted" error, Retry Ignore Abort.)

If anyone with such a capability could slurp off the source
(text) files and simply email them to me, and toss the original
media, I'd appreciate it. I'm in Los Angeles, but anywhere in
North America would be cheap postage.
