Hello Tom,

yeah, i have the same history. First operating system for my 286 was the Microport ATT  SVR2. I have original 5 1/4  media, the tree manuals (mostly printouts of the original UNIX Man pages beide Intel Assembler and bootloader) and images from the disks. But, as you remember, Microport V.2 had no networking (beside UUCP)

Still Interested ? Send me a email, I will prepare the images and find a way to deliver it to you (earliest tomorrow). And if someone know a way to Boot this images in a hypervirsor, this would help me. The current hypervisors are not able to emulate MFM disks and hercules graphics AFIK
