   Thanks, Doug!

   I had found a couple of pages of the manual and have been able to get
into the firmware and configure the system **if and only if** a TZ30
tape drive is attached. Even if the controller is set to MSCP on both
channels and an alternate second CSR address, I can't access the RFM
either by the ODT method or the BOOT xU253 method, and can't boot from
the SCSI disk.

   This isn't a showstopper, but it is terribly confusing. The person
from whom I got the switch settings and RFM instructions runs a variety
of tape devices on his RQZX1 with no problems.

   I can, by the way, install a second tape device and have that recognized.

   My board is silkscreened REV. E, and the resident firmware utility
shows a firmware revision of v2.3 and hardware revision "L".
