[pups] board id help and another Ultrix-11 update

I have finally found the time to play with my 11/93 (the bad news is
it is an un-recognizable CPU for the Ultrix-11 install tape, but we'll
cross that bridge later.)  Other than the usual compliment of MicroPDP
boards (Ethernet, RQDX3) this one has a board made by a company called
"Data Systems Design".  The Model appears to be an 808836-05 Rev.K.
It has a 26pin Berg connector in one corner for which I do not have a
cable.  Now the big question. Is there anyone here who knows what this
card is and in particular what the wiring of the Berg connector looks
like??  Why you ask??  Because with this card in the machine thinks it
has an RL01/RL02 controller and an RX02 controller.  If this is some
kind of disk controller, I would love to know what disks it hooks up to.
BUt with only a single 26 pin connector, I can't imagine what disks it
would use.  If anyone has seen one of these or especially if you have
documentation, I would love to hear about it.

Also, here is another Ultrix-11 update.  In order to comply with the
KISS principle, I have opted for a simple RL02 based system to do my
image dumps.  Hopefully, in the next day or two I will be sending a
tar file to Warren for the archive that will contain a pair of RL02
images that comprise a simple bootable system for the 11/23 and if
that works, I am going to also try to make a TS11 tape image of the
install tape so that people can opt for whatever configuration suits
their taste.  I will send something to the list when I get this far.
