Yes. :-)

The RK03 and RK05 use the same packs. The interface between the drive and
controller is also very similar. The main difference is that the RK03 is
actually a Diablo Model 30 (high density version), the RK05 is a a DEC

Incidentally, did the RK04 ever exist (by rights it'd be a low density RK05)
