Yes, that is what I was suspecting. That mainframe time is a bit before my time though... The most archaic I have worked with, were non-networked PCs without hard disk, that needed to be booted from 5 1/4 inch floppy disks to start up DOS... That was in 1990 when I started my university studies. They were replaced by hard disk based 286's pretty soon afterwards though...
