Hm, I once did an installation (1.2? 1.3?) so that the install system was split 
like 8 256k pieces, and then an 11/750 could be installed from TU58.  I think 
same could be done for RX01 in 11/780, but I never tried that.

Simpler was to do a netinstall by just loading boot from tape or floppy, at 
a driver for DEUNA is in the boot program.

MicroVAXen could boot from TK50 and install.
