ISTR No VMS distro was available on floppy, the only VMS floppies I can
remember were boot disks for MicroVMS round V4.x. Also, all 3100s have SCSI
as standard, the only differences were the type of SCSI connector that was
presented externally. Older machines had the female HD68 connector......

CDs were available for 5.4-2 and above I believe; I'm pretty sure I've got
most versions from then upwards.
