ok, i've got my vt420 hooked into the console of the CMD. that's neat. how
many SCSI cards have serial consoles? i bet we could count them on one hand. :)
anyway, i'm doing a format, a qualify and then a final format. if i disk makes
it all the way through a qualify it's good? i've got some disks here that are
a little flaky and have some bad spots. got them hooked up to the 3100/76 at
one point to try the TEST 75 stuff to format them, but they never made it all
the way through. maybe i should break that thing out and start again with doing
that to see what i can come up with.
but anyway, if a disk makes it through a qualify run, can i trust it? it seems
to be doing read then write to the entire disk, so it seems like a fairly
comprehensive test to me.
