Both, but the latter is not important at this time. I had what I thought
was a 5.25" disk with an RT-11 filesystem on it, and not having any other
viable quick & dirty solutions to read it, thought perhaps the DECmate III
or the Rainbow *might* have something on them to read RT-11 filesystems.
This was before I found out PUTR could do this. It was also before I
found out the disk was actually FAT formatted! Duh!

So at any rate, problem solved, for now. The next time I find my VR201
monitor I'll put it in a place where I'll remember.
