  I WAS READING ONE OF THE QUEST/RE IN THIS SECTION AND DOUG
WOKOUN MENTIONED THE PERCOM CONTROLER. WELL, I HAVE A PERCOM
DRIVE AND AM HAVING A LOT OF ERROR 138 (DEVICE TIME OUT) OCCURING
I CAN'T SEEM TO FIGURE OUT THE PROBLEM. I HAVE TROUBLE SHOT THE
ENTIRE DRIVE ( AM A DOUBLE E MAJOR AT CSU) AND STILL CAN'T
FIGURE IT OUT. WHAT I REALLY NEED IS THE SERVICE MANUAL OR EQUIV.
ANY INFO YOU CAN SUPPLY ON THIS DRIVE WOULD BE HELPFUL I'M SURE.

                        THANKS
                        PETE

Could be that you are too intelligent to figure out the problem...
like the man who spends two hours taking apart the car engine to find
the car is out of fuel...
Error 138 can result from bad sectors, like when I first was breaking
in my doubler chip.  I don't know much about Percom drives, it's out
of my element.  Sorry I can't help.
