Can you not modify prlink to ignore tracks 78 an above?

I have a 8250 (built into the 8296D) and an SFD 1001.
Unfortunately the SFD1001 seems t be
a bit out of alignement.

And both say, when I try to format a disk "format speed error".
I haven´t gotten to investigate yet, but it might
be related to using 1541 disks (48tpi) instead of the QD disks.
