Then you should have all you need to run a minimal system; CPU, memory and a
serial interface for the console. (In fact, it's possible to run _very_ short
programs with only an 11/23 or /73 CPU card, a serial interface card, and no
memory - put the program in the PAR's! :-)

Do you mean, a cable? If so, I can hook you up there (not the most robust,
mind, as my supply of pins/shells are cheapo knock-offs, but functional).

What kind of serial card(s) do you have (some take the LSI-11 serial
'standard' 10-pin Berg connector shell, the early ones use the DL11
compatible 40-pin shell), and what's going to be on the non-PDP-11 end
- a PC of some sort?
