This brings up a point I'm interested in.  I've got a kryoflux and the 
parts that hopefully will let me run regular 8" drive.  Does anyone have 
experience writing RX01 or RX02 images with such drives onto blank media 
(non dec pre-formatted)?

I'm really hoping to create test media to use before I risk any of the 
masters I have to any drives (I have a Minc 11 with a lot of floppies).

I hope to image all the media I have via the same 8" drives, and not 
fiddle with the Minc or RX02 I have, but to just get them going, and use 
them on systems.
