Digital RX01 dual 8" disk drive uses IBM 3740 FM format disks.
Recently I was given an RX01 drive and RX11 controller card (M7846) and the PDP 8 equivalent (M8357) but no disks. I need to check out the drive, install the card into an available PDP 11 and/or PDP 8 and make disks from images downloaded from the web, starting with RT-11 for the PDP 11. Quick notes to start off this project:
1. Downloaded EK-RX01-MM-002 manual that describes set up.
2. Page 5-4 "RX11 is not an NPR Device."
3. Page 1-2 "The M7846 plugs into an SPC (small peripheral controller) slot with any PDP-11 processor. "
4. Bootstrap start address is 1000
