Jerome Fine replies:

I assume that you booted V5.05 of RT-11? I thought it would run
RT11XM with less than 64 KBytes, but I guess not.

If you have the RT11SJ monitor on the system disk, then the command:
will boot the SJ monitor without changing the boot block program.

If you want to change to an unmapped monitor, I suggest RT11FB
instead of SJ. If you have the unmapped device driver on the system
disk, then the command:
(substitute the actual physical device name like DU0: instead of SY:)
will change the boot program for you. Then you can still boot RT11XM
with the BOOT command.

If you have any other question, please ask.

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
