Shouldn't be much to "build".  Just connect to a Mac and load the client
software.  Done.  It's really that simple.

>this thing should be able to make exact working copies.

"Crate an image" is more in line with what it does.  I know John had been
working on the client's ability to write images back out to floppy, however
it wasn't his core concept or feature push.  And some protections can't be
written back out as they used special drives or production methods the Disk
II can't reproduce.  So writing success may be limited.

You can however make raw and .WOZ images for use in emulators, which are
exact as possible images with the protection intact.  Jason Scott for
example has a live stream setup when using Applesauce for Internet Archives
https://www.twitch.tv/textfilesdotcom.  So you can get an idea of how it
works as well as how to use the UI there.

I've been twisting John's arm a bit and we might even get to work on a
hardware based emulator soon to make use of the new image files.  He's also
working on setting up a server to host images users have created.
