Okay, now what?

Now I can format and use RX50s. (PUTR makes them, I have a bunch of SSDD
disks) and I can mount them. How do I transfer RSX-11 from them so as to
boot it with another diskless 11/83 and build a bootable harddisk? I am
putting in an ST-251. The /83 was cannabalized, and I'm rebuilding it for
a discounted price (The owner will let me have it cheaper if I fix it up).
It needs an OS, it ran RSX-11, but the heads crashed upon delivery (You
can hear stuff bouncing around inside the drive). Do, I'll need to boot
from floppies, Format the 251, transfer the system to it, and there.
How do I tell PIP (Or whatever I should use) to make a bootable disk?
