Yes, the OS allows entering of drive geometry. Actually only supports
MFM up
to 70Meg. RLL drives will of course work, just not to RLL capacity. I'm
looking for the largest drives I can find.

Hmm... those aren't so common (in the DEC world, there are two
choices - the RD53 (Miniscribe 1325) and the RD54 (Maxtor XT2190).

I take it you aren't constrained by a narrow set of expected
geometries? (i.e. - you have a running system and/or the install
procedure asks you about the drive rather than assuming?)
