Nope. Although it's still built in. Sometimes I mount it when I 
need some strange tools. This disk is full of workarounds :-)
Thanks to CDC/Seagate to make such reliable disks. Full size,
330 Megs, loud as a jet, hot enough to bake eggs and slow as a
dog... But unlimited retries -- guaranteed hangs your system!

Cheers,
Andy
