You have most likely the OpenVMS Freeware CD. It is in the OpenVMS
Files-11 format. You need an OpenVMS Machine to read this CD. And then
there are 2 OpenVMS Savesets for the VXT2000+ Software on this CD, which
you have to install on your OpenVMS Machine with @sys$update:vmsinstal to
get the vxt.sys and vxtex.sys (the bootfiles).
