It turns out my memory was faulty.  I remember discussions about SCOPE, but I don't actually see a copy.  There's COS, SMM 4.0, Kronos 1.0 and 2.1.2, lots of NOS from 1.2 through 2.8.7 and about 8 in between, NOS/BE 1.2 and 1.5.

No 64 bit, no 7600 -- DtCyber doesn't support either of these.  But DtCyber is open source, if you feel enterprising you could do that work, I'm sure you'll get cheers if you do!
