Thanks, Jay! I did that and TSX-Plus Version 5.0 started right up.

It executes several small .com files and then put up a big splash
screen on the VT220 for "DBL/RT11/TSX by mumble mumble
Corporation" or something like that, but freezes halfway through
it and won't do anything until reboot.

Now I just need to download a TSX+ manual and figure out how to
remove/modify the startup files.

Is this disk something the list is interested in, or is it easy to
find a working TSX image elsewhere? (Regardless, I'm going to
preserve the disk since it's another OS to play with).
