      Correction - I have 4 disk packs for my two RK05's. They're set up in
      tandem as drive 0 and 1.

      > --- Awesome systems! Geez, I would really appreciate that. It would save
      a major hassle in trying to build OS/8 from paper tape images. Prior to
      that, having a known good disk to read would also facilitate
      drive/controller hardware debugging. I won't have an alignment cart, so
      this drive might not initially align with your tracks. However, I'm
      optimistic that I can work out a way to align to those tracks.

      perhaps a couple days to PA, so it might be Jan. 15th before I can get it
      to you.

      OK. I ordered a few too, why not.
