I've successfully created an XXDP image in TU58 format, and booted it on my
11/23+, again at 19200 Baud using SLU2 on the CPU card(19200,O,8,1 as that
was how SLU2 was strapped). I found the utilities easy to use, and the
documentation was sufficient for an analogue hardware man like me to get it
working! The ODP boot program listing on the site worked fine, in fact the
biggest problem of the whole job was finding the <line feed> key on the
VT320 I'm using for the console (F13 for anyone who's interested). I found a
link for the XXDP RL02 image on the TU58 emulator site.
I haven't tried making an image of an RL02 yet, but may well do so next
week, when I have a little more time.
