I should explain that so far, no rebuilt files are used to boot the
system.  I.e. ITS, EDDT, and NSALV are built, but they are not dumped
into a new bootable ITS yet.  It's on my todo list.

As far as I know, KLH10 can't boot from tape (or disk).  That may be why
there are no such instructions.  However, I emulate the KSHACK; BUILD
DOC steps by loading NSALV and DSKDMP from the host file system and
proceed from there.
