There should be ULTRIX for the 11/750.

An other option is 4.3BSD-Tahoe. You can get it from TUHS or the CSRG
CDs. Once I instaled it on a MV II, that was upgraded to a MV III+ after
install. It was really fun to work with that old software. (And it felt
much faster then NetBSD. No surprise, given the 15 years of software
developement in between. Though, NetBSD is astonishing efficient on
"old" hardware, yet giving contamporarily features like IPv6.)
