Do you realize what you're asking for? From the first floppy label on the set:
MOTOROLA Computer Systems
S6300-UNIX Derived Operating System 09/18/85
P/N 88900353 Barcode S/N AJK008929 FE07A
FIRST TIME INSTALL 1 of 2 DISK 1 of 32
The "FE07A" is the OS version; near as I can tell, this is the last one for
And after you install those 32 disks, there's at least 8 more, for 40 disks.
To format, read/write/verify that many disks would take a l-o-n-g time,
which is why I haven't even made a backup set yet (since I have two of the
systems running, it isn't too urgent).
Suggest you post to comp.sys.3b1 on the off-chance someone has a spare set
they could sell you. The Motorola 6300/6350 is the same as the CT Miniframe,
and is logically identical to the 3B1/PC7300/UNIXPC/Safari4/S4 (such that
3B1 executables which don't use shared libs can directly execute on the 6300).
The Motorola/Four-Phase building in Cupertino no longer exists, and Convergent
Technologies was absorbed into UNISYS a few years ago at which point all their
"old" stuff was tossed in the dumpster and/or sold off to "scavengers" such
as Weird Stuff Warehouse.
