After successful restarting  one of my older computer (Sardis ST-2900, dang 9600 7N1
- weird). I now need working drives to boot OS9. So ...

I'm about to venture on cleaning up a bunch of drives. And in the past I've used a cotton 
swab and Isopropyl alcohol to clean the heads and a wipe down of the rails. Then carefully
'lube' the rails and other parts with silicon spray in a cup and different cotton swab.

Any recommendations or is this good enough? Anyone have any alignments disks for various
drives? Also what is the best way to clean off mouse urine?
