- Are you sure of using modular connector ("DEC MMJ", beside of ISDN
RJ45) of your DEC3000 for serial console?  Model 500 DB25 male is not
a serial console.
- Specially tailoured TCWSCONS kernel can use PMAGB-B framebuffer and
performs *splendidly*.  If yours is equipped with one of other models,
PMAG-B (CX), PMAG-A (MX), PMAG-JA (TX) or PMAGD-BA (HX+), I can provide
you 1.5X current kernel for you.
