I just got a TK50 tapedrive and the controller card for my MicroVAX II.
Alas, there was no cable. I tried to hack together a cable but it was not
of too much success. When I try to boot from MUA0, it keeps on reading
the tape for a moment, then it says 'DEVOFFLINE' and halts there. What
gives? Is the cable failing, or is it somewhere else? Before this happens,
the red light on the tape drive starts to blink.
