The Question is:

Where can I locate documentation and downline images for the Digital DEMSA
 server.  I have a customer that wants to make changes to their current
 configuration, but I have no known means to access it.  Can it be accessed as
 a MOP host?  The server has a l

  You will want to contact the Compaq Customer Support Center for
  assistance in acquiring these old software packages.  You will
