I have a PDP-11/23 system with a DSD-440 dual 8" floppy drive.
On reset, it prints:


and waits for the operator to insert a bootable 8" floppy and type DY0.
The problem is I do not have a bootable 8" floppy.

The DSD-440 should be compatible with either RX01 or RX02.

Can anyone on this list help me out with a bootable 8" floppy?
I will gladly pay for the floppy + shippng costs.


PS: Pictures of the system can be found here:
