I'm running it in a netbooted configuration as are a handful of others
that I'm aware of.  At this point you need a VS3100/30/40/38/48 with a
SCSI/SCSI controller, or you need a VS3100/76.  I've yet to hear of any
success stories with the MicroVAX 3100's (but if anyone has done this I'd
certainly like to know :-)

I was bored a while ago and wrote some stuff on netbooting the VS3100 from
a Linux server.  However, I was also bored this weekend and got an OpenBSD
system up and running, so I'll be writing a complimentary section for
netbooting from a BSD server sometime soon.
