You don't mention *what* version of VMS.  If you go with VAX/VMS 
V5.5-2 (Hobbyist V1 CD-ROM) it is possible to fit it onto a 70MB 
disk, though you'll have to leave some stuff out as I recall.  It is 
a pretty tight fit.  If you could get ahold of MicroVMS V4.x it would 
definitely fit (I have no idea where to find a copy).
