I am looking for RSTS-11 circa 1972 to install on my PDP-11/10
machine. I am more interested in a "historically correct" rather than
"more useable" system.
I have a PDP-11/10 with 32kw core memory and an RK05 disk drive. My
goal is to load RSTS-11 on this machine. I have scoured the internet,
including rsts.org and Bitsavers, but I have not come up with an
My plan is to use Ersatz-11 or simh to prep a virtual RK05 disk. When
I am happy with the setup, I will transfer the binary disk image to my
real RK05. I wrote a program that allows a binary disk image to be
transferred via a serial port (I will release the source once I am
successful in getting the machine running).
My hope is that I can find a distribution (virtual tape, virtual disk,
etc.) that I can use to install my OS. I am looking to learn and
understanding the process so that I can become self-sufficient.
Any ideas where to begin?
