PDXVAX runs 5.5-2, so I was hoping to get doc’s specific to that release, though realistically even the 5.1 doc’s you just uploaded will be great, and I’m rather curious to get them accessible anyway.

What exactly is VAX/VMS V5.5-2H4?  I’ve never been too clear on that.  It’s just V5.5-2 with added hardware support, isn’t it?
