It's a possibility, another list member is trying to dig out an old
Wyse set-up disk, this may also do the trick.

They have a version of DRDOS and whilst this is hardly irreplacable I
don't currently have a copy. I'd also like to gain a little more
experience with this type of drive. I've tried DOS 2.11, 3.21 and 3.30
(and even 4.1, 5.0 and 6.22). With all versions one of the disks is not
recognised at all (this could be another fault all together). At the
end of the day I'm more curious than desperate.

Thank you all who replied to this post for all of the hints and tips
