You might want to have a look at the current release of the TCP/IP
software. There seem to be two different sets of documentation, you want
the documentation that's all one file. According to it the EQ driver has
been modifed to work on a system running the SJ or FB monitor. However,
I've not been able to get them installed, despite following the directions
on how to do it, and what options to include in the SYSGEN.

Opps..... You hit the problem on the head. I forgot to SYSGEN in the
driver. I did that today, and while as far as I can tell I did everything
right, it's complaining about the hardware. I know the hardware is good,
as DECnet under RSX-11M can use it.

Guess, I'll have to break down and try the XM versions of the software.
The RT-11 install instructions are a lot easier than the TSX+ instructions.
