I'm not sure about 2.11BSD, as I've not managed to get that running on my
PDP-11/73. The one time I tried, it still had problems with Viking SCSI
controllers, this is supposed to have been fixed, so you'll want to do a
little research on this to make sure you're trying to install a high enough
patch level.

As for drives, I've been using 100Mb and 200Mb drives that came out of some
sort of IBM PS/2 (I bought a whole pile at a swap meet a few years ago), and
I've also been using 2Gb Segate Barracuda's. Keep in mind though, that I
don't run UNIX.
