Additional notes, comments on style, and whatnot are welcome.

Someone is offering me an 11/23 with (I think) 2 small disks
(RL-something) which are meant to bbe 10Mb each (maybe 5?)
Can someone tell me what Unices this will run? It has no media other
than the disks (it has, I think, RT-11), but I've read about people
getting stuff into things down a serial line -- how practical is that?

The Dallas/Fort Worth DECUS local users group is scanning all Digital
documentation, no matter how old. You might contact them
(denton(a)dsserv.com or wisniewski(a)dwlug.decus.org) to see if they'd like to
copy your manuals.
You get a free copy of everything they've scanned when they finish.
