It works - I tried this a few hours ago with vax/4.0.

Now if I could find this elusive OpenVMS/VAX CD... gone are the days...

I just downloaded the release version. As far as I know it, there are
some problems with -current on VAX, so I didn't bother to build one.

I can also say that the emulator felt much faster than expected - on a
dual 800 mhz i386 box; it did take about an hour to install (sans
X11), but then it feels almost like a physical machine.

Next to revive XVM/DOS . . .
