What version are they running? I've run standard RT-11 on a
SMS-1000. Either that or the version they currently have simply
needs setup for the SMS-1000. Keep in mind that the /34 is Unibus,
and the SMS-1000 is Q-Bus.

They probably need to talk to Mentec (http://www.mentec-inc.com/)
about getting a newer version than they're currently running from the
sounds of things. Since this is definitely for commercial use, you
can't simply find a copy somewhere.
