Yes, but how many heads did it have? Was it an ST506-interface drive
or an ST412-interface drive? It's being pedantic, but there is a
single-line difference. One could imagine a controller that could
handle a real ST-506 but not a real ST-412 drive. AFAIK, by the time
PCs supported the ST-225, it was a moot point, but pre-PeeCee controllers
might not be happy.
