[pups] A bootable disk image for a PDP-11/34?

In fact, if someone has RK05s and isn't too far away, I'd love to get a
bootable image on an RK05 cartridge -- of course I'd pay postage both ways.
(I even have some original shipping boxes.)  

BTW, the mail Warren cites below was sent before I had really dug into my
11/34's manuals; I have 124kW of MOS memory in the machine, and RSX-11M can
use it all in a "mapped" configuration.  Also, if I am going to transfer a
disk image, I have another DL-11 I am going to install to make use of
Warren's VTServer program.  

TIA -- Ian

Now that I (think I) have got a working system of loading a bootable
disk image over a serial line into a PDP-11/34, can someone create
a suitable disk image? I'm away until Feb 14th and won't be able to do it.

The requestor is Ian King <iking at microsoft.com>, who says:

  I've recently acquired a working PDP-11/34, with RK05s.  (I also have some
  Plessey DD 11/80s for it.) My 11/34 is mapped, with 124k
  available; I also have another memory card with 128k on it, and if I can
  ever find any documentation on the Plessey memory cards and the memory
  management switch settings, I may have 252k one of these days.  :-)
  I have only one DL/KL-11, but also a DZ11.

He'd like a 6th Edition bootable RK05 disk image that he can download
onto his real disk.

Many thanks all!
