Re: Looking for Alphaserver 2100 ECU 1.8a diskette

   I may not have a version 1.8, but I may have somethng newer
(1.11A, 1-OCT-1997?).  Zip-compressed: diskette image (MOUNT /FOREIGN +
COPY), diskette BACKUP /PHYSICAL, and loose files, respectively:

      http://antinode.info/ftp/misc/ecu_1r11a.bup-zip
      http://antinode.info/ftp/misc/ecu_1r11a_unix_vms.zip


   Wake me if any of that looks useful, but you can't figure out how to
make a floppy from any of them.  (The first one should be useful on a
non-VMS system which has something like mtools or rawwrite.)

I'll try my hand at diskette making this weekend and keep you updates. Question is the "unix,VMS" for OpenVMS systems ? What about the "bup" file? It will probably be obvious when I get to see the contents, just wondering in advance...

   It was supposed to be nearly obvious from the parentheticals in:

> [...] Zip-compressed: diskette image (MOUNT /FOREIGN +

   ".img" is a simple image, suitable for COPY to a diskette mounted
/FOREIGN (or for some simple, non-VMS diskette image restoration
scheme).  ".bup" is a BACKUP /PHYSICAL save set.  The last kit has the
files as files, so you can do what you want with them (other than put
them onto a floppy).
