I don't think there ever was a "small Massbus disk", at least not in terms
of physical size. We had half a rack with an SI-9900, a Fuji 160MB and
a Fuji Eagle on one of our 11/750s (with an SI pseudo-MASSBUS card) and a
couple of RM03s on a real MASSBUS.

What I've always wanted to do was mount something like an RA72 inside my
11/750 (where the battery backup goes, on the far left), and run that
machine _without_ having it take up several racks (our 11/750, with its
disks and tapes was six racks wide, half at 42", half at 72" tall. I was
able to rescue everything from that one except the two RM03s).
