Welcome to the VTserver software archive at
ftp://minnie.cs.adfa.oz.au/pub/PDP-11/Vtserver

The VTserver software allows you to install 7th Edition UNIX
onto a PDP-11 without requiring a tape drive.

You will want to retrieve the file vtserver1.1.tar.gz and the
file v7rootdump.gz. You will probably also want the v7*.Z files.
Don't uncompress these .Z files, they can be used as is.

Once you have extracted the files from vtserver1.0.tar.gz, read the file
vtreadme.txt (or its PostScript or HTML equivalent).


Current shortcomings (as of 2nd February 1998):

	+ I haven't been able to test the rp or hp disk devices.
	+ /dev/tty1 doesn't work once you've booted UNIX.

If you want to try this out with a root filesystem that is faster to
download, also get v7shortroot.gz. This only contains:

dev/*
etc/*
mdec/*
*unix
bin/cat
bin/chmod
bin/dd
bin/echo
bin/ls
bin/make
bin/sh
bin/stty
bin/sync
bin/uncompress
bin/vtcat
boot
