Two questions/observations. 

The first is only tangentially on topic, but loosely related to
my recent attempts to revive Ultrix-11.  Is there anywhere that
is, or is interested in, archiving versions of Ultrix-32 for the
VAX??  I would hate to see these become as scarce as Ultrix-11 
was.  We almost lost that one.  I have numerous TK50's of Ultrix-32
software some of which actually loads.

Which brings me to my next and much more on topic question.

How does one go about creating a .dsk image from a real device??
Is it just a dd of the raw device or is there some software needed
to make the move??  And on a further note, if I made a .dsk of the
RA81 I currently have Ultrix-11 running from, are there any of the
emulators that would be able to use this??  If so, I would be glad
to clean it up and send it to Warren for the archive.  (Assuming
I can use the Ultrix-32 system that shares these disks to make the

All the best.
