That'd be fine, since the IIe card requires 24-bit addressing, which also
isn't compatible with System 7.6.

However, looking at where the prices of the Asante units have gone, and
how rare the rest are, maybe I'm better off using Zip disks to move data.

I really just want to image some Apple II disks and send them over
the network for safe-keeping.  Or, serial might be another option; Apple
II disks weren't exactly huge (in terms of a 19.2k-baud link).
