I am studying Unix v6 using SimH and I am documenting the process, as I 
go, as part of my own learning process. I have much to learn about Unix, 
Unix v6 in particular, the PDP architecture and its relationship with 
v6, and SimH's emulation of the PDP, so, I am taking notes... I thought 
that I would share the notes in raw form as occasional blog posts in the 
hope that the knowledge that I work to obtain, might be made available 
and useful to others. I also believe that these forms of communication, 
as insignificant as they may seem individually are part of helping to 
preserve the knowledge of our computing history, in the aggregate. Here 
is a link to the first post, a run at an installation walk-through:


I am open to feedback and criticism, but please keep in mind that I am a 
relative newbie to v6 and PDP land, some of my assumptions are 
probably/undoubtedly wrong, but definitely fixable :).
