Running CONFIG on Apollo Workstations - An Example

Here is a transcript running the stand alone utility 'config' to set the configuration of RAM, disk, video, and other peripherals on an Apollo workstation.

Bold type is user input.

NOTE: ESDI drives are referenced by 'w' but SCSI drives are referenced by 'w6:0' or 'w5:0', etc., where the digit is the SCSI ID.
