I would be most grateful for any RSTS-11 version V4 or earlier. The
RSTSV4A disk at rsts.org does work, but I am after a distribution to
construct an equivalent.
I have located tape image files that should contain the distribution,
but the tapes are not directly bootable, and I don't know how to get
them to play nice with E11 or simh (I have tried both). Once I get a
prepared Rk05 disk under the simulators, I can get the disk image onto
the real disk.
As I mentioned, I want to learn the black art of running my old machine
using the distributions that were from the same era (1970 - 1974).
