I found more info on DOS/VS (not VSE, but close ;-) 1n the Hercules FAQ:
2.07 Where can I obtain DOS/VS ?
I've put the DOS/VS r34 install tape on my site. It'll expand to a 21 MB AWSTAPE file, dosrel34.aws. You need the Coverletter to install it. Read the relevant postings of the Hercules mailing list first, as the install process is quite obscure.
You can grab those files at :
