Since nobody (including me, the developer) seems to have the original
RALF-format source files for OS/8 ADVENT, you've got to be careful to
replicate the environment used to build the .SV file. Normally, the
ADVENT.SV assumes that the files are stored on SYS: - if they're moved
elsewhere, the .SV image won't work. However, it'll generate an error,
not kill the simulator in my experience. Seems to me that there's
something badly wrong with your SIMH or the system running it if you
can't run ADVENT off of Rick Moore's diagnostic RK05..
