Yes, one can take normal disk and punch them. They do
need to be accurately done. I've been looking at setting
up an index wheel to do just this. I have need for
doing it on 5-1/4 and 8 inch so it is an interesting
problem. One of my 8 inch applications has index holes
on the outer diameter of the disk.

Most of us are friendly helpful folks.
Most of of us become unfriendly when directed to a website that tries to
install Gator spyware on our machines, like you just did...
Stopped by one of my better scrounging places yesterday. I left with a new PC CMOS RAM card. This card has on-board battery backup, utilities in on-board ROM, write protection ability, and can be used as a solid state RAM drive and you can even boot from it. Also got the manual with it :-)
Other goodies include two of the MS-DOS co-processor cards for the HP 9000 series 200 and 300 computers. I don't need to run MS-DOS on the 9000s but this card is required before you can use the HP 9127 drives to read and write MS-DOS formatted disks. I've got a heap of 9127s so the cards are very welcome. Anybody have docs or SW for these? I'm not sure if SW is required to use them to read/write MS-DOS disks or not.
Also found a NICE little 5 slot VME chasssis made by Performance Technologies. It has two cards in it but I haven't checked it out yet to see what they are.
Also found a nice counting scale with a remote scale. Also a big pile of Endevco Charge Amplifiers. Parts of a HP VXI chassis. Also found a 19" rack with a Recognition Concepts Inc Trapix 2d system. The odd thing about it is that the cards appear to be exactly the same size and connector layout as DEC Hex-bus cards! In the same chassis was a rackmount PC. It was connected to the RCI system by several LARGE ribbon cables and appears to be the I/O and storage system for the system. I didn't see much use for the RCI system so I left it but I grabbed the rack mount PC and a second loose rack mount PC that seems to be a spare.

Why would you assume that finding and installing some
software would be easier than making up a simple molex adapter
connector. As I recall, it was a 9 pin molex but I could
be wrong. That is all of 9 wires to deal with.
This might work, if you can get at EDT in the state before
I haven't tried it to see if you can.
Who remembers how you could interrupt an RSX startup and
then, with luck,
PIP your way out of trouble with files that shouldn't have
