Hello,

I recently got my hands on an old copy of Xenix-286 (2.3.2) and installed it
onto an old machine (286-12 , 1 Mb memory , 51 Mb partition for Xenix (of
202 Mb hard disk).

It came in 10 disks 5,25" (1,2 Mb), B1-2, N1-3, X1-4 and GA. But my question
is:

Does anyone have the Development package? I know the software is very dated
by now and many disks are bitrotten, but I would like to try it out. I uses
Minix some time, but wanted to look at a "real" Unix on that little machine.

I hope someone here can help me.

Regards,
Sebastian

Sorry, I don't have the disks any more. I had Xenix crawling on a
286/16 with 1 MB RAM in '89 or '90. It became useful when I upgraded
to 4 MB.
