   I just put together a VMS VAXstation with TZ30 with the express
purpose of making a SAVESETof the MV-II Diags - Customer and Field
Maintenance - tapes that I have. The Maintenance tape is suspect, so a
comparison tape would be groovy.

   I'll image them and then pass them on if somebody else wants the

   I also have Terry Murphy's MV-I Diags on RX50 that I need to image.
I just last month got a probably-good floppy drive for the MV-II, so I
should be able to image them if not test them.

   Al, do you want copies of this stuff?
