 Track/sector access from BASIC?

Any suggestions how to go about reading a disk (3.5 inch, DD -- 720 KB)
at the track and sector level from within a BASIC program?  At the
moment, I'm using Qbasic, but would consider acquiring powerbasic
if its advantages would help.  (I also have Turbo Basic, if anyone
remembers that.)

Are there any libraries available that would include the ML to do

Any advice appreciated.
