This looks like it might be exactly what you're looking for:


Steps to start with a 4.1BSD base in simh and use that to ultimately produce a V8 system. I haven't audited these instructions myself, so YMMV, but I suspect someone wouldn't go through the hard work if this didn't do anything.

That said, your original posting mentions the PDP-11, but also "Berkeley Unix Nodes". For the latter, do you mean VAX? These instructions are for VAX too, I don't know whether V8 ran on PDP-11 or not, but if that's your intent, you may want to start with a 2.xBSD or V7 as a base instead.
