It's much easier to have the Q-Bus RL02 controller in a MV2. Run VMS with
CMUIP, on the VAX and FTP the image from the Linux box to the VAX. Then
write the image to the RL02 pack.

Of course like you've I've no cab kit.

However, this doesn't solve the original problem of getting NetBSD onto a
TK50 tape :^)

BTW, what happened when you tried booting the 2.9BSD image? I tried
booting it on my /73 and it came up, but the console went all wierd on me.
