You haven't done anything wrong -- SIMH doesn't provide any kind of
emulation other than straight TTY for its console window. I've run
Open VMS in Simh/VAX and have the same issue. You'll likely just have
to read around the control codes, and later use a telnet client to get
reasonable output, once the OS is installed.
