PDP-11/24 bootup w/9312

Anybody have a newer M9312 tech manual which describes the S1 settings for
this beast? The boot ROM (in U20) is a 23-774F1 and I'm trying to boot
RL01's and RL02's (device boot ROM -751A9). My manual is EK-M9312-TM-001,
so it's the first edition.

I'm unsuccessful in getting this machine to boot even though it had been
said to have worked before I got it. Hardware config is the same as when I
got it but I want to just make sure I was told correctly that it worked.
Have to verify S1 switch settings as a beginning.

Flipping the Halt/Cont/Boot switch to Boot causes some flickering of the
RL02 drives' Ready light as if there could be some activity. But it stops
after about 20-30 seconds and the VT100 shows just "_at_01000000" and is
locked. Manual booting by entering 173000G just shows some register info
such as "_at_ 1010" on the next line.

Could I get a copy of somebody's latest edition of the tech manual. I'll of
course pay all costs.

Thanks for the help!
