You could have, for example, four RL02s each capable
assigned a "pack" from the card.
What were the biggest non-MSCP-attached drives?
How hard would they be to emulate?
While RL02's would probably be easy to emulate,
at 10MB a pop, you don't get alot of bang for your buck.
Note that some operating systems only support 4 drives
per controller, so that will need to be a consideration
as well, when drives are being partitioned.
Note: The capacities mentioned below are approximations.
The largest non-MSCP drive that I'm aware of is the RP20, at 929 MB.
However, I think that was only supported on the KL10. ;-)
For the rest of the world, you'll be looking at MASSBUS devices -
The RP07 is next in line at 504MB, but not supported by all operating
The RM05, at 256MB . . . definitely supported by RSTS/E;
not sure about smaller operating systems like RT11 though.
I think the RP06 was something like 176MB, although you're still into
Once you move below the MASSBUSS level, I think you're looking at an
which is what? 25 or 26MB ?
I'm sure someone may chime in with more. . .
