I guess I'd add to this list that the PDP-11 must have a drive that  
can read the media to be archived! :-)

The reason I'm asking for help is that I fail on the first  
requirement. I don't have a PDP-11 of any sort as I've given away all  
that I had to members of this list. At the time I gave them away, I  
didn't know about this stash of RT-11 disks. If I had known of it, I  
would have done this myself before giving away the required equipment.  
So, I'm asking for help from someone who *does* have a PDP-11 with an  
RX01 or RX02 drive.
