I am a brand new user of NetBSD/VAX. I installed it on my "new"
microvax II yesterday.

The install FAQ was excellent, other than minor tape drive problems
installation proceeded without a hitch.

I do have a question though. I hope that this is the correct list.

My machine has an adapter for 8 serial ports. How do I access them?
/dev/tty00 etc do not exist. I looked at MAKEDEV, there's no mention
of hardwired or serial ports there. I looked in /etc/ttys, it seems
to be expecting /dev/tty00 etc. Do I have to do the ugly mknod thing
