Any idea how this came to be?  Weren't DEC and IBM fierce competitors?
 Hard to believe there would have been collaboration on such a
project.  And what would be the point?  Wasn't OS/2 a graphical system
from the start?  Can you post a pic of the tape label and the
directory listing you extracted?

As everyone else has said, whatever it is, it should be archived
before it becomes unreadable!
