[TUHS] SysIII for the Vax

About one year ago I found installation tapes for System III for the VAX
somewhere on the Net. Unfortunately I can't find the original URL on disk
any longer, neither on my bookmarks and a Google search does not find
anything now.

The distribution is available as tap archives, and you can find it on


As four files.

My questions are:

	- as this is the only copy I can find now on the Net, would it 
make sense to save it also on TUHS and mirrors?

	- the tap tools do not seem to recognize contents (dtp seems to
identify the first file) and I am currently too busy to further investigate.
Could someone with spare time have a look at them?

	- a strings of tape1/set1 seems to reveal that it only supports
an RP06 at NEXUS 8 and a TE16 at NEXUS 9. Could someone with more time 
have a try at them using SIMH?



	These opinions are mine and only mine. Hey man, I saw them first!
