Um, is there more than one instance of operating systems called
"UNICOS"? The UNICOS I know is for Crays (UNI for UNIX, since it's a
SysV, COS for Cray Operating System, which was the old OS before they
figured that going UNIX was probably the only commercially viable
solution) and will hardly run on a 36-bit UNIVAC.
