DECmate III and Rainbow 100+

I'm trying to get either of these systems running in the hopes that I can
access what I believe to me a 5.25" disk with an RT-11 filesystem on it.

Both systems have a video port and a COMM port. I tried connecting a
VT510 to the COMM port on each system but didn't get anything (at either
9600 or 19,200 bps). I can't find my VR201 to check if video is coming
out either one.

Both systems access drive 0 of the RX50 upon boot-up. The Rainbow 100+
has an internal hard drive but I don't hear it booting from the drive.

Anyone have any experience with these guys?
