It's been a while, but I believe:

DLOAD "<filename>"

Will load the specified file from disc. (Short for "Disk load" of
course). Alternately:

LOAD "<filename>"[,<device>,[<load-action>]]


LOAD "*",8,1

* in the filename acts as a wildcard character, and specifying a
filename of just * would load the first file stored on the device.
<device> should be 8 for floppy disc, defaults to using tape drive if
absent. Load action of 1 will load to a memory address stored in the
file's meta data, default behaviour is to use BASIC program workspace if

Anyway, back to the ol' shell prompt...
