A litle note like:
Look at http://minnie.cs.adfa.edu.au/Quasijarus/compress.html to see how
to decompress the files. 
in the FORMAT file can save much time if you are a Quasijarus beginner. 
Or a Link "HOWTO install Quasijarus" with a note about the compress
issue, creating tapes, ... on the Quasijarus main page will do the job
also.

Again. "Look at Distributions/4bsd/components/compress.tar" can save
time...

Ahh. I did not know this. 

ARGL! Now my TK50 died! Sh..., fu..., [other censored stuff] 
What have we learned now? Kids, do not dismount the optical positioner
at the back of a TK50 drive for cleaning! GRMBL.
OK. Tomorrow is a new day, new luck. I will mount the TK50Z in the MVII
and I will give Quasijarus a try. If Quasijarus also fails, the BA23 box
will stay inactive until I get a working, 2.11BSD capable PDP11 CPU.
