Well thanks for getting stuck in and giving it a new coat of paint four years later!
Seeing as you took an interest in the game, shall I lend you an image of the CD version (or alternatively a link to it) to look at?
The most notable difference between it and the floppy versions is that - like I said - it includes an actual frontend from which you can select your table, rather than giving you three WB icons to click on. I guess it was done this way for ease of use on simpler CD systems such as the CD≥≤.
