So *THAT* is what an 11/725 is! <shudder> Isn't the RC25 one of those drives
that rates about the same if not worse than a RD53? What I was refering to
is that VMS V5.1 is the last version to support it.

Hmmm, now I'm going to have to dig up one of my catalogues and see if it's
the 11/725 or another system that I saw a picture of and thought it looked
cool. Could very well be, is the 11/725 a really tiny system that could go
beside a desk?
