Do you recall which specific PS/2 hardware?  You're talking AIX 1.3 for PS/2, right?
I thought you might even be able to run it on an LX40...  There are at least reports of people getting it to run in older versions of VirtualPC.

I’ve never seen a set.  It would have been released on 9-track tapes.

I used to work on AIX PS/2 which was a required companion product to AIX/370.

Good luck in finding media for AIX PS/2.  As far as I know, it was never released on
CDROM and the last version I had was ~53 3.5” floppies (long gone now unfortunately)
and *only* worked on specific PS/2 hardware (no BIOS — all drivers went straight
to the “metal”).
