DB2 1.2 - Plea for help

I have just been asked to try to restore a db2 v1.2 backup. One major
problem:

The server it was on is now well and truly dead. We tried to restore
to DB2 8.1 but with the drastic changes between v1.2 and v8.1 its
unable to restore it.

The computer systems were legacy ones from a company we took over
from, the installation files and disks are gone.

So what im looking for is an early release of DB2 that i can download
or can purchase from someone (tech support at IBM dont even have an
early release that they can supply to us) so that we can restore the
DB backup file.

ANY HELP and i mean ANY would be greatly appreciated.

I still have my copy of DB2 V1.0 (not V1.2) for OS/2 (Single User). There
are 5 diskettes in all. I also have all of the manuals in hardcopy. Would
either or both help you?

What platform backup was taken from?
What is the size of backup image?
Can you send me the backup image?
(I will forward you my e-mail later)

YOu only have a backup? Not a running system?

First: Please send much more information:
Which platform? Exact release?
Can't you "fix" the server, so you can do
an db2 export to flatfiles? Maybe its to late.
And: what is the information inside worth? In $?
_How much will you spend get the information?_

If you can answer this questions, maybe, but only maybe,
thereīs a light.
