Hi, I am very new to the Old Editions of Unix and PDP. I got licensed
recently, and I have been using the Binary Distrubutions of V6 and V7.

I am having trouble unpacking the v6.tape on Bob Supnik's Emulator. 

In the v6 installation guide it says to key in the


Using the Emulator, I deposit the instructions into 100000.

I attach the Tape and Disk using this:
> att tm0 v6.tape
> att rk0 v6root

I then run the instructions:
> run 100000

The Computer hangs, I break out of it. Then I type:
> boot tm0

It gives me a `=` prompt..

The Installation guide tells me to type:
> tmrk.

The emulator just freezes after this.

This may sound like a easy question, but I am very new to this.

Any help or pointers on getting UNIX V6 up and running on my Emulator
would be very helpful.
