Xenix 8086

Comments

  • N1.img is presumably the image to boot from. File reports 'pxelinux loader' which is kind of odd given that this system predates Linux by several years. N2 claims to be a floppy image without file system. The other images are tarchives, which has been confirmed with GNU Tar.

    N1 is the first boot disk, and set up desk. N2 is the file system, as well as N3~N7. All files correspond to HD disks N1 and N2. I do not know how one would rebuild disk N2, perhaps from a 386 installation, converting the HD/Tar disks to DD/Tar. All media must be perfect, No errors. I cannot remember if N1 had a manifest on it, but it must to prompt you for disks N2~N7.

    GNU would report pxelinux loader, because it has no setting for Xenix.

    Please redirect and post GNU Tar lists.

    I stand corrected according to The manual N2 is the file system floppy.
