Yup. Don't you mean a CDC-6600? I remember when they hit the
street. I had a Honeywell <big-mother/> too, as well as a DDC-116
sixteen bit mini that I used to do missle telemetry: no screen, no
keyboard, just lights and switches. We don' need no steenkin' GUI!

A few thoughts come to mind:
1) Can you mount it manually?
# mount /dev/hdb3
What is output and what shows up in "/var/log/messages"?
2) What is in the partition? Could you trash it and use fdisk(8) and
mkfs(8) to reformat it? I'm not sure I trust anything with a GUI
Hang in there, dude, we'll get there.
