I've installed ITS successfully in the past, using those notes, so it can
be done (unless something's changed).  However, ITS is a somewhat odd beast
- its user shell is the debugger, for example.  I think suggestions that
you start with TOPS-20 are good advice.  It will feel much more familiar,
especially if you've used something like RSX-11 or VMS.  -- Ian
