I ran kserve on RT-11 and kermit on my PC (and a 4-wire seriell line
in between). kserve (unlike the other kermits for RT-11) can write directly
with a put to a disk. The RL01 disk pack I used had no bad blocks. This
should the same way work with RL02 disks. In some blocks on the disk pack
should be written, if it has bad blocks. But I don't know which. I didn't
try it with media with bad blocks, because I had only this disk pack free.
(On the other is the RT-11 and my third has a red shock watch.)
