Progress on getting the MVII up and running:

I ordered the SCSI2SD adapter and it has come in, the plan is to use it 
as the system disk on the MVII.

The hobbyist VMS PAKS have arrived and I was able to download the VMS 
7.3 iso, not sure what I can do with it since I think it must be burned 
to a 512 byte sector CD.

I asked if the PAKS were good for older versions of VMS, like 5.5, and 
was told yes they were.  We'll see about that.

The Hobbyist VMS CD I had for VMS 7.2 was found and I was able to get 
the old Toshiba CD drive to work on the MV 4000 using a CQD 223A.  How 
can I create an image of these CD's on the VAX 4000 that I could use in 
an emulator?

I wasn't able to get the UC07 to see the CDROM because of a bad SCSI 
cable, I had hoped to format the SCSI2SD using the UC07.

Is it possible to use the SCSI2SD on a microPDP-11 under RT-11? I ask 
because of the disk size limit under RT-11.
