Re: /etc/disktab on vax

Oh, ob-sun4c:

I have an IPX and an ELC kicking around, but haven't had time or space
to play with them lately.  Put a coin cell on the IPX's IDPROM, but the
clock doesn't keep time when off since I borked the crystal.  Its power
supply is flaky and it may not power up if either not enough or too much
load.  I haven't had the space to get the ELC out of the shelf...

I was toying with an SS2 I was given, but like so many other things, it
has been in the shelf idle.  It had a SunOS 4.3 installation on it, which
I've preserved somewhere.  I could never get it to put its console on
ttya even when I explicitly set everything in OBP.  The serial ports do
work, though, when driven via getty or tip/cu.

Somewhere under all the other stuff is an SS1+ and I think the hulk of
another.  I've never had opportunity to explore them.  Perhaps that'll
be something to do on an upcoming long weekend...

That, and I need to make a pile of mini-DIN-8/DB25 cables...
