They are far from cheap, but they are quite well equipped with
additional SCSI and graphics cards -
does that mean they will have the rather rare TC adaptors?

The auction does indicate its open to offers. If they do have the
adaptors, maybe its worth making one at a more reasonable price :)

Thanks. That reminds me, have people tested installing/booting the
NetBSD-6 beta on a selection of VAXen?

I've just picked up a 90a, and a RJ11 to DB9 adaptor arrived this
morning, so I'm going to get it hooked up to a serial console and have
a play :)
