Convert Bootable .DSK Images to Bootable .PO images?

I have recently acquired an Apple IIGS, which I am using along with ADTPro and an 800k floppy drive to create bootable 800k floppies for my machine. However, I do not yet own a Disk II drive, so I cannot yet write programs to 140k floppies. Would it be possible to create a bootable 800K floppy from a 140k disk image?

Your GS can't boot from a 140k disk image unless it's also ProDOS. So none of the DOS-based games will work, for example. Most of those ".dsk" images (specifically, the ones without ProDOS) expect to see the Disk II hardware and won't work without it.
