Ultrix-32 isn't covered by the SCO license (well, they didn't create it),
and we haven't obtained a release from DEC/Compaq, unlike Ultrix-11. So
while hidden away in the Archive are various versions of Ultrix-32, I
cannot make them available.

Does anybody have contacts inside Compaq so we could persue a release?

Use dd in single-user mode and dump it to a tape :-) That's all.
