Subject: Fwd: Re: MicroVAX

  Greta, my name is Ben Carlson and I am attempting to restore an old DEC MicroVAX II for the University of Oklahoma's
collections department (see email below, Kerry is their curator). At this point, I believe I can get the hardware
operating but I have no operating system for itas the Air Force insisted on destroying the hard drive. I have been able
to replace the hard drive and the system has a tape drive and CD-ROM.
Do you have any idea where I might find the OS? Also, any documentation would be great as well.
Thanks for your help!
