Disk partitions under RT-11 using a WQESD controller

I'm working on getting TCP/IP working under RT-11 right now, and I decided
to bring the second partition on the disk online. I'm using a WQESD ESDI
controller and have the disk I'm using for RT-11 partitioned into several

I pulled out the manual for the disk controller and figured out how to do
        set du3: unit=2 part=1
so it would recognize the correct partition. Unfortunatly when I try to
then use the disk I have the following results.

.init du3:
DU3:/Initialize; Are you sure? Y
?DUP-F-Output error DU3:


.init/bad du3:
DU3:/Initialize; Are you sure? Y
?DUP-F-Bad block in system area DU3:

.copy sysgen.ans du3:
 Files copied:
?PIP-F-Output error DU3:SYSGEN.ANS


Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
