Hi All

First of all BIG THANK YOU PEOPLE.  We've finally managed to get a VS3100 
booting from a linux machine and running NetBSD/vax 1,2G :*)  so, we're 
quite happy already.  One thing we have noticed though is that on the VS 
we keep getting "le0 timeout" on the /var/log/messages file.  It was 
running routed when it didn't need to so we killed that and it doesn't do 
it as much.  Now it only tends to do it when there is heavy disk access 
over NFS.  Two theorys spring to mind, either a problem with the VS or a 
problem with the linux 2.0.29 (slackware) NFS server.  I remember a 
problem a while back that some people had with le0 overruns and the 16Mb 
memory thing.  We have 8Mb and it doen't seem to happen.  It's not a huge 
problem as it just glitches for a while and then it's OK again.  Just 
wondered if anyone had seen this.

After two VS3100s there's a MicroVAX II, then a MicroVAX 3300 to try and 
get running NetBSD.  We're dead chuffed with the VS3100s, it's great to 
see unix running on them :*)  Soon we'll have a small clump of vaxen 
being useful again.

Thanks in Advance.
