I just rescued a VAX 4000-200 from the scrap heap. Not the fastest little guy (5 VUP), but every VAX deserves a good home!

Anyways, it's got a TK70 tape drive in it. However, in the BIOS the "show uqssp" command shows two tape controllers and two drives! Tape controller 0 shows a TK70 (mua0) while tape controller 1 shows a TK50 (mub0). I'm not sure where the TK50 is coming from. Is there a rescan or something of the tape controllers that I need to do to eliminate the phantom drive?
