Should be pretty easy particularly since the rl0x is supported in the BSD environment 

That said why mess with PWB 3.0 on an 11?   BSD 2.9 will be more interesting.  Also if you have a 40 class system like the 34 of 34A see if you can find an Able Enable board.  The memory will make a huge difference. 

Sent from my PDP-7 Running UNIX V0 expect things to be almost but not quite.

I have (4) working rl02 drives and an 11/34, so I feel like there's a chance it could work.  I'll have to build it on the emulator, of course, then vtserver it over to the real hw in chunks.
