Tony and everyone,
You can also see Ted Nelson here - http://www.viddler.com/explore/waxpancake/videos/6/1.964/
Starting at 6:17.
If anyone has never watched this documentary before, I highly recommend it! It's my favorite.

Has anyone ever tried using the tu58em program to boot a VMS 5.2 install standalone backup on an 11/750 ?
I ask because I am attempting to do so, and I keep encountering mount verify errors when I get to the fourth tape in the set. I see a lot of web references to using tu58em in the PDP-11 world, but not so much on the VAX. I suspect some sort of protocol error caused by an invalid response from the emulator. Same problem with the VMS 5.3 install, by the way.
Before I pursue this approach to installing the OS any further I thought I'd see whether there's a known issue trying to do this.
Looked at the Microsoft package mentioned and then looked at the rest
of their items for sale. Noticed a couple of interesting pieces.
Vintage Oasys 30 AFII Japanese luggable computer
Cheap Altos V terminal if you can pick it up. shipping expensive
Altos V-H Serial ASCII terminal
Altos x086 Multibus Adapter Board with Tapemaster card
They have a bunch of PS2 computers also at the moment.
No connection with The Hackery in Vancouver BC, Canada other than as a customer.
Does anyone have a manual/datasheet/doc the for the Fujitsu Etherstar
86950B Ethernet controller? My Google-Fu has failed. I'm writing a
driver for an old VMEBus card and there are a few things that I'd like
to understand better.

FYI anyone interested in a famous S-100 68K CPU board prototype. This is
the board Prof Wilcox used in his book on 68000 system design and
troubleshooting. A real historical piece!
