The README.TXT file said which 'logical' volumes within the physical device
contained RT-11 filesystems,
and it's known that each volume is 32MB (65536 512-byte blocks).  If each
'logical' volume is 32MB you
just multiply.  volume 13 (numbered from 0) will start at 13*32MB = 416MB.

The README also indicated that you could mount from the ISO directly using
the DU device driver
but I've never tried this myself.  Presumably this would involve accessing
DU13:, DU14:, etc.
