   Well...it'll be nice if they're still readable.  I have a 
VAXstation-I here that I'd like to get up & running.  I've done 
installations from this set of floppies, but in something like 1988.  
(EIGHTY eight, that is!) :-/

   Hmm, bummer.  4.7 should be around somewhere; that was a VERY popular 
release.  A lot of people stuck with it long after 5.x hit the streets 
due to the big performance hit of moving to 5.x.
