A pre-generated system. I used the RSTS backup/image to a JAZZ drive, and
hooked it to make it bootable. Then I just boot E11/RSTS off the Jazz.
I set E11 to emulate our present system _exactly_ as it is on our real
/84. I have used realtek cards (NE2K clones), 3Com cards with the packet
driver, SMC cards, a system with 2 NIC's in it and decnet only bound to
1 nic, all other protocols bound to the other NIC. Nothing has worked...
