Boot UNIX V7 disk images on Supnik's PDP-11 emulator?

I have hardly ANY docs, so if someone could point me in an appropriate
direction I'd be grateful.

I'm trying to boot UNIX V7 off the disk images provided with Bob Supnik's
excellent PDP-11 emulator, running on my Ultra 5 under Solaris (compiled
with egcs/gcc):

-rwxr-xr-x 1 mrbill other 222192 Dec 18 03:45 pdp11
-rw-r--r-- 1 mrbill other 2048512 May 15 1998 unix_v7_rk.dsk
-rw-r--r-- 1 mrbill other 10485760 May 27 1998 unix_v7_rl.dsk

bash-2.03$ ./pdp11

PDP-11 simulator V2.3d
sim> attach rl0 unix_v7_rl.dsk
sim> b rl0

And thats as far as I get... anything just gives me back the _at_
prompt (ODT?).

Thanks for any help.
