Hi, I'm playing around with pdp-11 emulators right now, and I'm trying to figure out how to install an old version of UNIX (2.9BSD or 2.11BSD, I'm thinking). Have any of you installed things successfully to a emulated disk and had things work properly? I actually have a spare IDE hard drive connected in my computer, can I use that as a storage device? Does it have to boot off the tapes all the time?
Thanks in advance
