well, let's see, i don't know about the 3600 SCSI, but the VS2000 SCSI is not
bootable so you will still most likely need a boot floppy.  which shouldn't
be too big a deal.  the WangTek should work without a hitch.  i have reports
of someone using a WangTek-5150 on a VS2000.

no problem with the port jumping, i have, or will get:

1 - VAXstation 2000
2 - SUN 3/180
1 - SUN 1/100U
1-5 - SUN 2/120
1 - PDP-8/L
2 - VAX 11/750

so, yea, i think we're all into the big iron.  :)
