Folks -

I have this quasi-dead 3/260 sitting in a machine room downstairs from my 
office.  It has what appears to be a dead frame buffer.  Pulling that 
board resulted in it happily talking to a serial console whilst in diag 
mode.  Unfortunately, every attempt to talk to any device on the VME (as 
opposed to the main board) results in a bus timeout.  So, it appears that 
I need to reconfigure the backplane.

Heh - unfortuantely, I have zero manuals for this puppy.  So, can a VME 
expert point me at the info I need?  It has a mainboard, 2 Xylogics 
controllers (2 xy disks and 1 xt tape...), and what appears to be a 
memory board...
