Did this ever work? I went back to MESS 0.136 and it behaved the same.

I think you'll need to go back to a version from 2006, try MESS 0.110. Only evidence of it ever working is at http://www.dragondata.co.uk/hardware/Beta/Drag%20Beta.html

Confirmed working with both MESS 0.112 and MESS 0.125 with floppy os9l2v11 from current software list.

I've narrowed down the regression to MESS 0.139, so last working release was MESS 0.138 which successfully boots with floppy os9l2v11 from the current dgnbeta_flop software list.
