rzdisk?  really?  Are you sure that this wasn't an Ultrix-only command?
(Digital's SCSI disks used to be the RZ series in the DECsystem 5000 days
and I always thought that the "rzdisk" command was simply a simple
Ultrix-only command that DEC whipped up to provide an interface to some of
the SCSI-specific ioctls that those RZ disks had.)

Denis, who still has an RZ57 hanging off his Windows 95 PC (yes I know 
       that it's weird)
