ok, the VAXstation 2000 is ready to have stuff installed.  several questions
on how to proceed.

1) i have mopd-linux, can i boot the vs2000 from this or do i still need a
   boot floppy?

2) what exact files do i get? just all the stuff from the vax directory on

3) what miniroot do i need?

4) will i be able to install a minimal NetBSD configuration on one ST251 and
   mount the rest via NFS? (/usr comes to mind for NFS), and if so, what all
   do i need? mopd? or just plain NFS?

basically, i just need to know how to get started, the install doc is very
sparse.  i got the terminal attatched and booted up the thing, does all the
diag stuff and drops me into the ROM monitor.  typing boot fires up MicroVMS
which gets so far and dies.  

how do i put NetBSD on this thing?  it's headless, so the whole video console
thing is moot point.  will NetBSD be useful in the headless configuration?

thanks for all your help!!
