Do yourself a favor, don't mess with MFM disks if you can help it. The
cheapest solution is to get a ESDI controller and dig up some ESDI drives,
this should be far cheaper than getting even one RD54. In fact if you get
lucky, a SCSI controller is likely to be cheaper. Either solution will
generate less grey hair than trying to use an MFM drive.
