8250 help needed

does anybody know how to do the following things on a 8250:

Disable head bump on error and/or set the number of retries on an error.
This is a single m-w command on the 1541. I need it to read in some disk
images with prlink, and every time I read a 8050 format disk, there is
an 21 read error on track 78, naturally. The drives answers with the
head bump and this is very annoying and might also hurt the drive. Not
to mention that it takes some time, which is of course negligible when
compared to the disk image import time.

Format an 8050 format disk (single sided). I guess this can also be done
with a single m-w command. But which one?

Thanks, Nicolas
