I am still new to vaxes, so I can only describe a little of what I know. The
controller sits in slot 7, and responds to hp(8,0),hp(8,1), and hp(8,2) on the
copy and format programs for 4.3bsd dist tape. Also it tries to boot when given
the command >>>b dbb0, So it would seem these are rm emulating. I hope somebody
can help id this peice of hardware.
