Video of Xenix installation

Heh I don’t know why I did it either.  … Although it was good fun to work out the flags on Qemu to get the monitor to work over telnet …

-monitor telnet:,server,nowait

Other than that there is no sound just me installing.

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!

      • I didn’t mean the -monitor telnet:,server,nowait line, I meant the stuff that you typed on the Xenix boot prompt and console. That shouldn’t be necessary… or am I missing something?

        • Oh specifying the density of the drive… Yeah sadly it is, I know the fix is to tell the floppy controller that if you try to read the wrong speed/density for what the file size is, then throw an error….. Instead it just assumes you are a dumbass and succeeds reading at any density/speed.
