THe DEC 5400, 5500 and 5800 machines have never had device information 
released to net community, so my guess is that they will not be provided 
without some fairly heafty reverse engineering... The "pmax" area in the 
current netbsd tree is only capable of supporting "workstations", e.g., things 
that sit on your desk and have a graphics head.
