Hi all:

I've recently acquired a DEC 3000-M400 with two turbochannel framebuffers on
board. I'd like to run NetBSD on this machine. Questions:

1. What do I need to do this?
2. Anyone else run this particular machine? Caveats?
3. Can I run X? (On the alpha page it says the turbochannel FB's are
unsupported, but on the turbochannel page it says they are supported in a
platform-independent sense).
4. What's the easiest way to install netBSD on this machine? I don't have
access to fast internet where it's located, it doesn't have a CDROM (that I
can use), but I do have (root) access to a Linux box with scsi and any
number of (re)movable/external scsi disks, and access to a local ethernet
where the machine is located.

Any help appreciated,
