There is a programm called "maketape" in the 2.11BSD distribution. I
used it with great success to write PDP-11 and VAX BSD tapes. Of corse
this requires that you have a machine with a suitable tape drive, *IX
like OS (for maketape) and network (to get the distfiles onto it) at
hand. I created my 2.11BSD tapes on the QBus PDP-11 machine. I replaced
PDP-11 CPU and RAM with VAX CPU and RAM, netbooted NetBSD, wrote the
tapes, remounted the PDP-11 CPU and RAM and started the installation.
