[pups] Getting a MicroPDP-11 Running

I just acquired a MicroPDP-11 from a Goodwill a couple of days ago with a
RX50-A dual 400KB floppy and an RD52 31/33(?)MB hard drive, but it doesn't 
have a tape drive. My questions are:

1.) What UNIXes have been successfully loaded onto these types of machines?

2.) Can it be done without a tape? If so, has anybody pulled it off?

3.) Are there any utilities, either DOS or UNIX/Linux/FreeBSD based, to write
and/or format RX50 floppies?

I tried looking through the mail archive, but there didn't seem to be anything
there that addressed this question. Thanks in advance to everybody.



You know you've been spending too much time on the computer when your
friend misdates a check, and you suggest adding a "++" to fix it.
