Basic 6.2 is also on the site and can be run from flop.

So only HP-UX can run on a headless machine (no keyboard and monitor)?

I guess I'll have to find a VGA-to-3-BNC cable. And I'm not sure
whether any of my LCD monitors or projector can handle sync-on-green,
but I guess I'll find out. My old Nokia 445Xi 20-inch CRT could, but I
no longer have it.

Worst case, I can build a sync separator board.

Thanks! I found Basic 5.1 and Pascal 3.1 there and downloaded them.
It would be nice to get newer versions, but as long as those work on
the /380 it will be sufficient. Next I need to get an older PC running
to use Teledisk. All of my modern PCs don't have a built in floppy
drive, and I normally use a USB 3.5" floppy drive, but USB floppies
don't support non-PC formats.
