As far as I know RSTS was never ported to anything except the PDP-11
at least not a port that was marketed. My guess is that these are
for one of the DEC PRO machines. These machines had the small
LSI-11 implementation. At any rate, you're right, they're not
for the Rainbow.

If you want to unload them and don't find anyone else who wants
them, I might be interested. The only reason I'm not more
interetsed is that none of my LSI-11s have floppy drives and I
don't really feel like going to the trouble of duplicating a
PRO. On the other hand, if I ever come across a PRO, it'd be
nice to have an OS for it. If I were you, I'd check the
vmsnet.pdp-11 and alt.sys.pdp11 newsgroups. You can probably
find someone there who could make use of it.
