I now use ZIP and JAZ drives for this (mostly in the PDP-11 and VAX
range of systems) and that works really well. Of course, capacity
is not as great, but it's kinda nice to have a stack of ZIP100
disks labelled "RD53 MicroRSX V4" and such. Also, easy to xfer
disk images between my lappy (which has both a ZIP and a JAZ drive)
and the test/production systems ;)
