Hi all,

i'm having trouble with my DEC 3000/500 machine ... its display gives F0 
with according to the technical reference guide means it cant get into the 
console code. Therefore it should go into the `miniconsole' wich isnt 
documented .... 

Is it posible in the `miniconsole' to download an arbitrary piece of code 
into the RAM using X-modem ? someone told me that that was at least 
possible at one moment on one of the serial interfaces... but wich one ...

Any idea's are welcome .... i fear i messed up both Flash ROM's :((

Thanks a lot in advance :))

P.S. please forward to my address to for i am not yet subscripted
