The floppy isn't completely dead even though trk0 on both sides is gone.
Made a clone of the floppy with a SuperCard Pro board and it IMLs far enough that I can get into some diagnostics.
Don't know what to do without docs.
I suspect the configuration goes through the RS-232 port, since all of the configuration string are in ASCII.
Today's project is to go through the later-gen 1174 controller docs to see if there is some hint of how to
configure the thing and try that on the earlier model.
