The VCFed museum (Wall NJ USA) could use the RA60 pack for its 11/44.  I
donated the 11/44 with a RA60 drive a few years ago, but I am unsure if an
RA60-bootable pack came with it, most of what they got are just data packs
IIRC.  I personally don't have an RA60
Please advise and I can send you an address to mail / arrange to pick up.
