Thanks, everybody for your great ideas. Of course I should have
remembered some of them, but the grey matter gets leakier every day.
90 percent of the information is either already backup savesets or plain
data, so I'll take the suggestions about moving it appropriately. The
last ten percent are indeed bootable tapes or images I want to keep as
tape images, so the VMSTPC and SIMH stuff is the way to go. Yes, I'll
probably want to at least access them from an emulator or simulator on a
PC, and just perhaps use them again on a VAX, but for now, I just want
to store them in a way I can recover them. The idea about using
LDDRIVER (I have VDDRIVER) is also excellent.
