I have a bunch of 4.x.x CD's and I remember having a box with 3.x.x and
maube GL-something or other (which is the name of the OS for the IRIS
2K/3K machines), but I need to dig deeper, since I made a big move a few
years ago and I dunno where I put them. The tapes were the old 1/4 inch
60MB or so type.
