Why dont ask for the directory/with CRCs or similar and compare with other
OS/2 checksums ?

That doesn't seem feasible. I'd have thought that I would have heard of
such a thing before this thread.
Just because the tape directory listing can be pulled up and matches an
install tree does not mean that it's an "OS/2 port for the PDP"... surely
someone needs to actually look at the tape contents and verify that it's
code before any such claim can be made?
It's not impossible that such a beast exists - but isn't it far more
that someone once happened to back up an x86 copy of OS/2 onto tape via a
(for whatever reason)?
