I'd appreciate it, Glen. Only the handshaking lines (IFBY, IDBY)
need be buzzed out, I think. The tape motion commands seem to work
just fine, but reading or writing moves the tape without the driver
returning (i.e. stays busy). I built my cable from an Overland
description, so I'm not completely sure that it's correct.
Once I know that the cable wiring is right, I can tackle the card to
see what's going on there.
