OK, my machine is at home, so, from memory I recall KA41-A as the boot rom.
I forget which revision level.
I am rolling some tarballs to take home on a CD (have to write a cd on
an NT box [puke]) so I will give it a shot tonight.
Any preferred methods to install if it is running Ultrix already?
It has 6 drives and a TK50 tape. It could be networked, if I drag
enough coax out to the shop, but, for starters I would prefer bringing
it up from Ultrix on an RZ25 or writing a combined boot/install tape
from Ultrix, and letting it crank away from that. I would expect it
also ought to boot off a bootfs in swap, too? Can it mount Ultrix
file systems to unroll the tarballs from that?
