I see... okay, my first NetBSD/vax port (VAX 4000/300) took about 6 hours
without docs... i'll try my luck, but first i have to see if something bootable
is still left on the disks to try around.

I even can't find any information about this box. Except this:

The MVME141 came out Dec 1989
The "MPC" came out 1990, was a VME box with M88100
About "S800" i only find some hints for "Series 800", which consists of several
models using M88100 CPUs.

But "Multi Personal Computer", Type "S800" with "VME141" CPU doesn't go
together. Maybe this is either a modified MPC/Series 800 or even some prototype
of this, being equipped with this 68k board.
