FWIW, I've got a DEC PDT-11 (Haven't touched it in years, due to space constraints)

that didn't have enough memory to load BASIC off floppy.. (no clue off'a the top of
my head what it's memory size is...) Gawd, I gotta get that thing out, hitch it up
to a terminal, and see iff'n it'll still boot...
