dxf geometry on layer"0"

One of the requirements of setting up Driveworks here was to automate creation of CNC code for manufacturing. For this we need a DXF file with all the geometry on layer "0" and text and sketch lines on layer "1". I have created the master drawings in this manner, but I cannot get Driveworks and Solidworks to do so. I can do this with manually creating the dxf with a map file. But Driveworks will not use the map file. Without the map file, Solidworks creates a layer "sld-0" to put the geometry on.
Did we waste our money on this software?
I have not heard of a CAD package that would change the layer names when creating a dxf.
