VAXstation II tapes

I seem to have a problem. I just got a VAXstation II, and it came with a
whole box of TK50-K tapes. I've a bad feeling that these are blank tapes
though, double bad since I'm suspecting that the system needs to be
reloaded. I'll give a detailed writeup of the problems I'm having later on
(I forgot to make notes when I had it powered up).

The only identificaton on any of the tapes is a small white label with
numbers on it. Some of the numbers on each tape are printed, others hand
written. I've a bad feeling that these are simply backup tapes, in which
case I don't know if they'll do me any good or not. The other possibility
is that they are for something called "RS/1". If anyone can tell me what
these are I'd appreciate it.

Since I assume these aren't the VMS distribution tapes, does anyone know
how I can get them? I'm aware of the Hobbiest License for OpenVMS, but I
think it's to new of a version to run on my VAXstation II/RC. There is
also the problem with the Hobbiest version of it comes on CD-ROM. All the
OS manuals that I've got are for MicroVMS/VMS 4.4
