I thought about this too. Why not use a PC 1.2MB 5.25i drive
on a spare PC to write the media onto the floppies? Then
use the floppies to load it on the VAX? The PC would also have
the CDROM and VMS media. You would just have to figure out
a way of making the seperate floppy "images?".

There is some info here that may describe it better:
