<For what it's worth, I've successfully installed VMS 5.? (I can't

Which is why I suggested 5.2 or 5.4.  I'm currently running a vs2000
with a RD53 loaded with VMS5.4 with decwindows and a few of the libraies
tailored off (and deleted) makes for 20,000 blocks of free space.  CMUIP
dosent use much but it's easier to run decnet to one IPserver.
