I SYSGENed the 4.8 image on simh, and transferred ICP.TSK, just to do
another try...

The newly inserted task, showed the same parameters, using TAL ...AT.,
but issuing a @command causes the same big crash, dropping me on the
initial ODT monitor.

I did another test, with DMP.
Only three blocks of the original ICP.TSK are unreadable:
o73, o107, and o177 (all numbers are in octal), with the usuale I/O
error -101, and no mention in ELI DU0:/SH

I'm angry: the damaged ICP.TSK is TCP.TSK;3 and I did a purge to make
room on the disk the first day I got it. Can't remember if another
version was present...

I've a couple of questions:
1)VFY gives me two error I can't clearly understand. 
	000541,000226	owner [1,54]
	file is marked for delete

	I/O error reading file header -101

How can I associate xxxxxx,yyyyyy to a file name?
I tried PIP /FI:xxxxxx:yyyyyy/LI with no luck

2) the .tpc images found in the net, if converted to .tap, are suitable
for use in TU85em? Having no tape unit, I could try to install
everything from scratch using a tape emulator.

But the best would be to have 4.2 (*not* plus) tape images or someone
with a running installation so kind to give me the four damaged files.

VFY seems not to be able to repair the FS...
