CD #6, Version 8.0, OS/390 - MVS Based Systems
The MVS Turnkey Project for Hercules

by Volker Bandke

Inside this CD are two systems: One, the Hercules 370 emulator for Intel-based Windows systems, and two, IBM’s MVS 3.8e system. Feel free to install both these systems and boot up MVS on your PC. You may then develop MVS applications on your PC and port them to a mainframe. If you need assistance, visit the website of the creator, Mr. Volker Bandke at
