PDP-8 OS/8 Disk Image Problems

I've recently started to play with the PDP-8 using the excellent SIMH
emulator and I've come across a problem: none of the PDP-8 OS/8 disk
images that I've found seem to allow me to use DECtapes. As all the
games I've found (mostly smallish BASIC programs) seem to come on
DECtape/DECtape images. Does anybody know where to find a disk with
proper drivers. I tried to rebuild the OS, but BUILD couldn't find the
proper drivers either.
Actually, I have my doubts as to whether BASIC even works, as it seems
to not even want to run the little
10 PRINT "HELLO WORLD."
example that I cooked up.
