how do you get the ">>" prompt on this machine? I just get the VAX-like ">>>"
prompt, which can't handle the syntax mentioned. The result is the message
"ARG OVERF", as "help" also doesn't mention this syntax. I know this from the
DECstations, but my DECsystem 5500 behaves a bit different, it looks more like
a VAX in the firmware. (Yes, it really has R3000 CPU boards).

In worst case, i will try booting via MOP with using ris on the boot server,
which will be a DECstation 5000/240. But booting this beast from CD would be
much nicer and easier :)
