Awrite, now, how does a person translate a geometry to
a DEC drive type? For that matter I don't know which TEST
it is, but either way I don't imagine that the formatter has a
help option... Does it?

I have some here but I haven't tested them because there
was no monitor with them. I have some cables and monitors
for uVaxIIGPX and uV3100 but am not sure thay are compatible
and don't want to break anything. Its a DB25 phobia. Most
listers are aware of what problems can come from expecting
compatibility between any two randomly selected DB25 items
(like printing and SCSI, for example). A DEC cable number
would be useful here.
