   None of the floppies are originals, and would not boot the MV-II with
RX50 I tried them on last year, so they may be MV-I specific, or trash,
or the RX50 I had was flaky. I don't know whether either variation is
complete, but both variations have 2 identical sets, so that's a good
sign. As I said, I'm looking to revive the MV-II this month with a
different RX50 drive, so I'll give it another stab.

   Does anybody know if these should boot on a KA630? That would be
Useful Information.

   I *can* attest that the cptape archive I have of the Maintenance
Diags TK50 will build on a NetBSD machine and will format an RD52 and a
non-DEC ST251 as an RD32. I've just never been convinced that the
original I have is undamaged.
