I just opened the package up, and oddly enough, RS6000 Model 43P support
was added late in the release cycle according to the installation notes.
The 43P and "Power Series 850" are apparently identical except for SCSI
The edition I have is "LAR," or Limited Access Release. Comes with "MDB
Boot" floppies, one for IBM hardware and one for Motorola hardware. There
are two CDs, the OS and the "Desktop 1.1" CD.

I glanced through the HCL that came with the bundle, and it appears to
match the one in the above url. So that's about all there is.
I will keep an eye out for additional kits for those of you looking for
the media. There's two swap meets coming up this month so maybe I'll find
something. I'll keep you posted.
