I've mentioned this before, is there a way to do it similar to 4.3vaxbsd. From
what I could gleam from the information, and a tk58 tape I have is that you
could boot a mini kernel then do a copy of a mini filesystem from tu78 to a
special section of HD then boot from that section so as to copy the full
filesystem over to the normal place on the HD. The tk58 tape has /boot /format
and /copy. The only prob I see with this form of dist. is the fact that not
every home user of a vax has the luxery of a tu78 like I do.
