  No, I used cptape to get the files off the original, just a really
crufty script to put 'em back. And I have a brand new sed & awk
O'Reilly text sitting in the den.

  I dunno if the source tape is broken. I don't have any verified good
eqipment to test with it... I think the SCSI TK50 was the problem. I
do know that I have a problem with the RQDX3 board, or the distribution
board, or a cable. The fact that the MFM formatter was hanging led me
to think the Diags were busted, but further testing with both tapes says
that the RQDXA is failing. Bah!
