VAX 6400's futile attempts to booting Ultrix 4.1, still some progress ...

 the 4.2 sources are on cmuccvax, in /usr2/dec-source/ultrix4.2
i dont know the details involved in making an ultrix boot tape.. The
filesystem ill put up an image of will be a 4.4/vax install... i suppose if
one had the special kernel (well, to get / from tape) and the tape boot
blocks, and knew what had to go into that / filesystem image, etc, one
could make the boto tape from an ultrix environment, or certainly from
the sources, or maybe even from a boot cd (i have a 4.4/vax cd)..
