	Indeed it should be able to.   I personally have not done so but the
	processor/mmu meet all the criteria and 1.5MB is perfect.

	I have a "RX33" on my 11/73 so I can create a boot  disk and the
	root filesystem dump (split over 3 or 4 1.2MB disk images).

	Ah, thanks!   That answers some other questions I was going to ask ;)

	It is going to take some creative symlink and mount point work to
	fit 2.11 into 20MB disks - the system really expects to have ~80MB
	at least for /usr.   An RD54 at 159MB is more than enough but a RD53
	paired with a couple RD32/3 would be adequate.
