Bob, I got the v5 image from the PUPS archive to run under Bob Supnik's
emulator by using the bootblock from the v6 image:

/usr/local/src/Megan: ./pdp11

The bootblock is uuencoded below. I've modified the simulator to have
a .pdp11rc so I don't have to type in the boot commands. I should
put the diffs somewhere.
