At the risk of sounding rude, good luck! While admitadly I'm not out there
activelly looking for DG Nova stuff I have noticed that it isn't that
common. Also, the chances of finding someone with everything you're looking
for is pretty slim.

Realistically, start looking for DG Nova stuff, get what you can, when you
can. I'm guessing the hardest part you'll have will be in obtaining
software and documentation. The downside to this being, but the time you've
gotten a fully fuctional system up and running, who knows HOW much other
stuff you'll have collected.

OTOH, it doesn't hurt to ask. If you make enough people aware of what
you're looking for you might be pleasantly surprised.

Oh, and in the mean time, take a look at http://simh.trailing-edge.com/ if
you haven't already. It includes DG Nova & Eclipse emulators and RDOS 7.5.
