As a side note. The VXT-2000 is also capable of booting via bootp/tftp.
I did something quite horrible some time ago. I booted my VXT from a
Windoze95 box running a combination of some freeware bootp/tftpd
servers... :-) The VXT boxes runs quite well as long as you don't run out
of memory. Netscape tends to crash the X-server quite easily if there's a
lot of graphics on the webpage. I think you can set up the X software for
the VXT so that it uses some kind of swap over NFS though. That might not
be possible though, depending on which software you boot. There are two
"flavours" of the X server for the VXT. One that has Motif, and one
without. If your box has too little memory, you might want to use the one
without Motif.



Our way is peace.
