I never installed it this way myself, but MicroVMS on the MicroVAX II was distributed on
RX50 floppies: lost of them.
Of course, that was then and the floppy drives were younger and less temperamental (and
perhaps the same could be said about the people feeding the drives floppies ...)
That didn't stop me being massively nervy installing a VMS v5.0 upgrade from RX50s to
