I don't think the older ones can be, as I believe they're in ODS-2 format,
however, I do have a faint memory there might be a reader somewhere. I just
got OpenVMS V7.2-1H1, and the Documentation CD-ROM that came with it can be
read on both a OpenVMS system and a standard Windows Desktop (I've not tried
anything else, and can't remember the specifics at the moment).

Why don't you just go to http://www.openvms.compaq.com:8000/ and read the
Doc's online? Even if you're running V7.1, the V7.2 doc's there will be of
a big help in getting your system up and running. Once the system is up,
just type HELP.
