Jerome Fine replies:

It took a week of trying, but I have finally downloaded all three CD
images for RSX-11 and RT-11 from:
Note also that the file MD5SUMS seems to contain checksum
values, but I don't know how to use these values or produce them
myself to check if my files are correct. Can anyone help?

The best time seems to be at night. Please realize that these are
650 MByte files and will take many hours in most cases, let alone
a whole day (or three) if you do not have a high speed connection
like DSL.

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
If you attempted to send a reply and the original e-mail

e-mail, then the semi-permanent e-mail address can be
obtained by replacing the four characters preceding the
