Thats correct - The /200 should ne a REX (non-REX?) prom which is
basically not supported yet - I havent got a running /200 

loader/main.c
     30         /* FIXME We only check for REX but dont handle it right
now */
     31         if (magic == DEC_REX_MAGIC) {
     32                 /* Store Call Vector */
     33                 callv=cv;
     34                 rex_prom=1;
     35         }

Somebody would need to actually tune a bit for the prom calls for
read/write of disks and the command line parameters.
