Hi... I just joined this mailing list... I was hoping there would be a little
more traffic 'round here... Maybe this request will generate a bit?

I recently obtained a MicroVAX II, KA630-A.V1.3 processor, RQDX3 Controller,
2 RD54 drives, tape drive (TK-50?), DELQA Ethernet, Q22 bus, 9 megs of RAM
(I have another 4 which I want to install) and a dual disk drive not installed.

(I am new with VAXen, so I had to guess device names from boot-up screens...)

Currently, It's running Ultrix 4.4.

I would like to put NetBSD onto it... is it possible with this configuration?
I would like to contribute to the effort.

I am already running NetBSD on my Amiga 3000, and would have long uptimes, if
I wouldn't recompile the kernel as often :)

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Joachim Thiemann.

PS. Anyone with a spare copy of a hardware manual for a uVAX II, and/or above
devices???? Thanks.
