 When trying to install NetBSD-1.2 on a microVAX II two problems
 FIRST, RX50-bootdisk-12 won't boot with an error 22, "unknown
 error during boot". The boot file was copied on an RX50
 diskette with the commands
 SECONDLY, we managed to boot from a TK-50 tape, but failed to
 go farther than edlabel. In answer to the prompt
 Label which disk?
 we gave ra(2,0,0), meaning DUC0:, after which the program hang.
 Our hardware parameters are as follows:
 1. CPU DEC MicroVAX II with a Q-Bus compatible TRIMM INDUSTRIES
 DA523 system enclose (bus and console panel, DEC-like).
 2. DEC DEQNA Ethernet card.
 3. VDA50 compatible Emulex MSCP hard disk controller (QD33).
 4. DEC TK50 (TMSCP) tape drive.
 5. RX50 compatible Emulex MSCP floppy disk controller (DM02).
 What our right responce to edlabel prompt should be?
 Is it possible to boot from a diskette for us?
 What should the boot parameter in
 >>>b/<hex number>
 to boot from a diskette? Is it the same "3" as for tapes?
 With best wishes!
