You can get Venix (~V7/System III) for the Pro on the Internet at

The README file there has instructions on how to get it all booted.
You need a PC that can write 1.2MB, 5.25in floppies.  There isn't any
networking support.

Hardware wise, you need the Pro equivalent of the PDP-11 DEQNA
and a transceiver. also has all the DEC P/OS
software, which can do DECNET.
