Hey! What's wrong with the 11/725? I used to have one until the company
that was borrowing it folded. I didn't find out until my VAX was gone. :-(

Essentially, it was an 11/730 w/RC25 as the primary disk device, but you
*could* stick other stuff in there. I even knew a company that ran a BA-11
box off of theirs, but DEC *did not* support that configuration.

It was a packaging issue. There should be no way to tell an 11/725 from
an 11/730 in software.
