If you ment me, it turns out it was v0.7. I found the tape and read it.
I'm not sure what is there, to be honest. I thought it was the whole
kernel source tree but I don't think it is. But then again, I just
looked and it does seem to have most everything, just in odd places.
Looks like a tar of the root directory. It might boot if you had the
macos loader program. I don't have any info on the disk structure,
however. Not doubt others could reconstruct it. I don't have any macs
that old anymore.
As I recall there was a mac program which would set up the proper disk
partitions and a stand alone shell (sash) which ran under mac os and
a program which would boot a kernel from sysv disk parition, allowing
you to enter kernel boot args.

to close it's eyes for a moment:
