I just picked up a PDP 11/23 in excellent condition from an accountant that
was going to dispose of it. It has two RL02 drives and 10 disk packs. My
background in DEC stuff is only VMS, so I checked around and found some info
on booting the machine, which I did successfully.. once. I was able to get a
directory listing and type a few files. The system has RT-11 v4.00 with a
runtime package in Dibol for general ledger, etc. I halted the machine and
tried to restart it again, only this time it complains.

The display I'm getting is..



I also tried 173000G at the _at_ prompt, and still get 000010. Is there
something I'm doing wrong here? I've also been searching for a FAQ of some
type on RT-11 and the 11/23. Found some stuff, but would be very interested
if someone has a jewel URL they'd be willing to share.

Like I said, the machine is in beautiful shape, been well cared for, one
owner. I had to drive 5 hours one way to get it (Houston to Shreveport, LA),
but was worth every mile.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Best regards,
