  I dunno which version, and I whacked it in a fit of rage last night.
Well, in a fit of "I want my UNIX!!" Now I'm sure I'll have 2.11BSD
questions. :^)
  It's got a RZ24-E and a TZ30 hanging off an M5977 controller.

  That question was meant to be mostly tongue-in-cheek. I do have the
RRD-42, but I was really figuring that anything I want to install will
get read either from tape or across the wire.
  So far, I haven't found much hard info about the RQZX1.
