I must make a correction to a remark I made on a reply of Tony.
Tony wrote to FORMAT the RK07 pack. I told that under RT11, you
can use INIT, but to FORMAT you need XXDP.
Allthough that can be true for some media, I was wrong regarding
the RK07. Perhaps I was a bit mislead by my RK07 drive, but the
following tests show that Tony was correct.
I booted RT11 on the 11/34 from DL0:. These are the commands and
their responses that I got, after I loaded a pack (and READY on)
?DIR-F-Error reading directory
DM0:Initialize: Are you sure? Y
?DUP-F-Size function failed
DM0:FORMAT-Are you sure? Y
?FORMAT-F-Device not ready
Looking at the RT11 response, it seems that FORMAT is supported
for the RK07, just as Tony said!
It also shows that I am not completely out of the weeds ...
