Quick follow-up: I finally found a suitable hex editor and located the
file references Jim mentioned, listed below.  Now if we could figure out
the offset/length of the files we would be well on our way.
BTW, has anyone else had trouble reading the 570 meg file?  My editors
stream input and can read the last few (very boring) megs.  But the
farther up I go, the more trouble my drive has.  I've tried two machines
with different hardware, but both go wierd precisely the same way.

Here's a listing of some of the files buried within the TK2 .xas file:
