In theory you can use ANY MFM drive in the VS2000 by calculating
the appropriate parameters.
And if the drive works with a VS2000 it works with a RQDX3.

I don't know if there exists a RQDX3 Formater for VAX. I don't know if
this exists at all. Perhaps there exists a formater only for PDP11...
For home use, you must have VS2000 for use as a drive formater.
