Re: successful boot report

> Well done!

Thank you!  But, really, I can't claim much credit; the only difficult
part was getting NetBSD on the machine, and even that wasn't very hard.
The CD drive didn't work in the sense that I couldn't figure out how to
boot from it; I swapped in another drive I had handy and had the same
problem.  I put a second disk on my PWS 600au and installed onto it,
then moved it to the A10, and it all Just Worked.

Well, this one calls itself an LX, and in the console, the os_type
parameter claims to support VMS and Unix (and one other which I don't
remember in detail but I do remember thinking, wait, how does that
differ from the "Unix" choice?).  And it does indeed run NetBSD.  So I
suspect the LX is the `complete' one.
