That will only work if they never changed the password of the system
account. Sensible people change that first of all.

Yes. When asked for the time, press ^Z. That will leave you logged in on
the system at the beginning of the boot procedure.
You should run ACNT (RUN $ACNT) and change the password of a good account
to something you know, and then boot again, or manually enter the
_at_[x,y]SYSTARTUP.CMD to let the boot script run through.

DEQNAs can be used under RSX. Just add DECnet. :-)
But sure, you could run 2.11BSD as well.
