LSX is alive!!!

LSX - the smallest UNIX - is alive!!!


I have successfully recreated the correct contents of the LSX floppies - long feared lost - from incomplete octal dumps, and I now have the system working under the SIMH simulator. I am not sure about the copyright status of LSX vs Mini-Unix that is currently released, so I'll refrain from publishing the floppy images for now.

Here's how it works:
