I would love it if anyone on this list who maintains a wiki for PDP-11's could collect all of the various methods and instructions. I am still far from ready to do things like this (moving images to a PDP) but it is in my future. I could go through all the emails in the archive on the subject (thats fine) but a wiki to go to where everything is consolidated would be enormously helpful

Or FLX.  FLX 2.6 uses DJGPP and runs on old stuff, possibly as far back as actual DOS and certainly should have no problem with XP.  It doesn't do image copy, though.  You could steal some of the code and make an image copy tool.  Or you could use it to initialize the destination disk, copy all the files, and "hook" to write the boot block.
