Euhm... I can hardly believe that the 8032 schematics are compareable to
the 30**. Granted, the 2000 series have 'similiarities' to the 3000 series,
but still.. 

To return to the subject (SFD-1001's being broken):

Am I supposed to be glad to know that the zero page of my 1001 is broken
(6530? 6504?), knowing that the actual drive mechanism is defective too?

(one of the heads is kaputt. Does anyone having experiencing in adapting
PC-HD mechanisms (without Shugart-interface!) to such a device? AFAIK,
the 1001 (and 8[02]50) use 80 tracks, DD mechanics. I'm wondering if
a 80 tracks _hd_ mechanic would work.)(I guess not)
