Interesting.  I'd like to see how you tackled that (I can imagine
wanting a couple of layers of integrity-checking, for one).

Neat.  Any write-up of this or shared code to keep from re-inventing the wheel?

I was going to do a bunch of imaging with a basic machine and
vtserver, but this sounds much, much faster.  I have piles of 8"
floppies, RK05 packs and RL02 packs to copy off.  Not doing it at
1KB/sec is always an option.
