I'm using the RLV12 and it is a quad height board. I've got the boards in
the following order CPU - RAM - RLV12

Great, that is the last thing I want to hear. I'd be happier with drive
problems since I've got two other drives I can steal parts from.

I'm curious, the machine had the following cards in it, and I'm wondering
if one of these isn't required. I'm also wondering which would have boot
ROMs on it:

M3107 DHQ11-M 8-line async MUX module, DMA, Q-22
M7516 DELQA-M Ethernet interface (replaces DEQNA)
M7941 DRV11 16-bit parallel line unit
M7941 DRV11 16-bit parallel line unit
M8016-YB KPV11-B Power fail, realtime clock, 120 Ohm Termination
M8043 DLV11-J 4-SLU peripheral interface
         DB11R-1 Bus Repeater, MDB Systems, Inc.
                        SDB B Q-Bus Mk II (Raster Based Graphics Card)
         DQ606 Floppy Controller
         NSC NS23D 2Mb RAM
         NSC NS23D 2Mb RAM
M8192-YB KDJ11-AB LSI-11/73 CPU 8-Kbyte cache, FPJ11-AA compatible

I got all the cards yesterday, except the CPU, I'm using an identical one
that I had here. I'm using a SMS-1000 instead of the parts from the
machine they had been in because I don't have the room, and am missing some
of the power cables. I replaced the RLV12 with the TK-50 controller and
booted off of TK50 around noon.

Well, I'll work on the RL-02 some more tonite and see what I can come up with.
