You can. There was LSX (described in BSTJ, July 78) and and people also
got MiniUnix (a V6 variant that didn't need an MMU) to run on the LSI-11.
MiniUnix has the advantage of already being in the PUPS archive, and while
I haven't tried it, I have a book (Laboratory Minicomputing by John R.
Bourne) with a two page appendix describing the necessary mods. If you
send me your address, I'll mail you a copy.
